Comment on list classification: There is enough evidence to rate this gene Green at the next review - PMID: 33547280 (2021) reports 7 unrelated individuals with different de novo heterozygous variants in the EIF5A gene. All were affected by variable degrees of DD and/or ID, mostly within the moderate severity range. Other features such as microcephaly and craniofacial dysmorphism were prominent but overall, the phenotype is best represented by this panel. Supportive functional data included.

EIF5A is currently not associated with any phenotype in OMIM (last edited on 18/07/2019), but is listed in Gene2Phenotype with a 'probable' disease confidence rating for 'EIF5A-related craniofacial-neurodevelopmental disorder'
