Heterozygous pathogenic variants in NTRK2 cause Epileptic encephalopathy, early infantile, 58 (EIEE58 - MIM 617830) or Obesity, hyperphagia, and developmental delay (MIM 613886).

DD/ID are among the observed features.

Seizures can be noted in individuals falling into either diagnosis [eg. observed in the individuals with obesity and hyperphagia as in PMIDs: 15494731 and 29100083 (individual with Thr720Ile who presented also with moderate to severe ID)].

Concerning EIEE58 Tyr434Cys appears to be a recurrent variant that has been observed in 4 unrelated individuals (summary in table 2 from PMID: 29100083).

A de novo missense variant (Gly344Cys) was observed in DDD study participant DDD4K.02136 (PMID: 28135719).

NTRK2 is a probable DD gene in G2P associated with epilepsy and ID.

The gene is included in gene panels for ID offered by different diagnostic laboratories (incl. Radboudumc).

As a result, this gene can be considered for inclusion in this panel as green (rather than amber).
