Comment on phenotypes: At the time of curation, PEX26 is not yet linked to Heimler syndrome in OMIM.

Comment on list classification: Updated rating from Grey to Amber: PEX26 was added to panel and rated Green by Claire Smith. Only 2 cases reported so far (PMID:28944237 and see Claire's review) so rated as Amber with 'watchlist' tag awaiting further cases.

PMID:28944237 report 2 patients from 2 families diagnosed with 'Usher syndrome with additional abnormalities' with compound heterozyous PEX26 mutations. Both patients (a 14 year old boy, and a 4 year old girl) displayed enamel defects on deciduous teeth. The boy had amelogenesis imperfecta on permanent teeth. This is the first evidence linking PEX26 to Heimler syndrome.

Green List (high evidence)

PEX26 forms part of a complex with PEX1 and PEX6 and therefore has been a strong candidate gene for Heimler syndrome and therefore also syndromic amelogenesis imperfecta. Patients with PEX1 and PEX6 variants are often misdiagnosed with deafness or with Usher syndrome type II. Investigation of the enamel can discern Heimler syndrome from other syndromes of deaf-blindness. Two families with AI (as part of Heimler syndrome) and with PEX26 variants have been reported to date.
