Gene reviewed due to Haematology Specialist Test Group considering the inclusion of relevant neutropenia thrombocytopenia genes. The Specialist Test Group 21st October 2019 (consisting of 4 centres: WWMGLH, NWGLH, YNEGLH, LSGLH) all agreed that there was only enough evidence to rate this gene Amber. Additional comments from Haematology Specialist Test Group (Copy of Extra genes R91_consensus_v2.xlsx) 21st October 2019. Wessex and West Midlands GLH: Sitosterolemia with macrothrombocytopenia; North West GLH: Syndromic, not isolated thrombocytopenia; Yorkshire and North East GLH: no comment submitted; London South GLH: On R92.
