Green List (high evidence)

More than 3 families/cases reported for Dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase deficiency which can include convulsive disorders, motor or mental retardation, growth retardation, microcephaly, dysmorphology, autism, ocular abnormalities (PMID: 10071185), though there is variability in phenotype; could be some evidence for incomplete penetrance, as indicated in PMID: 9254861 and PMID:10071185. The mode of inheritance is biallelic for Dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase deficiency with convulsive disorders. Heterozygous individuals can be affected by fluorouracil toxicity.
