Comment on list classification: New gene added by Boaz Palterer. Biallelic variant identified in a patient with lymphopenia and recurrent infections. The same variant was detected in an asymptomatic older sibling and although authors state that GIMAP6 was the best candidate to explain the clinical phenotype in the affected individual, homozygous variants were also identified in 8 other genes (PMID: 33328581). Therefore, there is only enough evidence for a Red rating at present.
