Comment on list classification: There is sufficient evidence for PITRM1 to be classified as Green at the next GMS panel update. Three unrelated families including 2 consanguineous Palestinian families each with 2 affected boys (PMID: 29764912) and a consanguineous Norwegian family also with 2 affected sibs (PMID: 26697887). Phenotypes include ataxia although severity is variable. Supported by functional work and mouse model also exhibiting progressive ataxia.

Green List (high evidence)

Three families with two unique variants and in vitro functional assays. Cases and mouse model have spinocerebellar ataxia as a prominent feature of the phenotype. No OMIM phenotype.
