Comment on list classification: Given the incomplete penetrance of the ID phenotype, these patients are more likely to be recognised on the basis of the renal phenotype and ocular abnormalilites - LAMB2 has a Green rating on these panels, while an Amber classification might be most appropriate for the ID panel.

Biallelic truncating variants are associated with a severe nephrotic syndrome and retinal disease, usually leading to death in the first weeks of life. Psychomotor delay was evident in four surviving patients, owing to renal replacement therapy, albeit all died within ages 1.3-4.8 years (PMID:15367484;17256789). However, at least three unrelated individuals have also been reported with truncating variants in both alleles for whom neurologic examination revealed normal cognition (age 6, 18, and 20 at time of publication) (PMID:19251977;18278520;20556798), suggesting a role of unknown genetic or environmental modifiers.

Missense variants in the LAMB2 gene have been associated with a milder phenotype and normal cognitive development, presumed to be attributable to some residual LAMB2 function (PMID:16912710;16921188;17256789;21236492).
