Comment on list classification: Presumed pathogenic variants in TALDO1 have been reported in 34 cases from 25 families. 11 variants have been reported, most of which are homozygous in affected individuals, who are usually from consanguineous families. One variant, c.574C>T (p.R192C), is thought to show a founder effect although haplotype analysis has not been carried out. Biochemical analysis (urine polyols and/or TALDO activity) was carried out in the majority of cases and was supportive of a pathogenic effect of the variants in all cases. Phenotypic variability is reported, however liver cirrhosis (with or without deranged liver function) was present in a significant proportion of cases, particularly those which presented neonatally (77%). Liver dysfunction in TALDO1 deficiency does not seem to be typically associated with cholestasis, however the clinical presentation is often with neonatal liver dysfunction, which is included in the scope of this panel.

In OMIM TALDO1 is associated with Transaldolase deficiency. Evidence comes from Verhoeven et al. (2001) (PMID: 11283793) who report deficiency of transaldolase in the first child of healthy, consanguineous Turkish parents. The patient presented with liver cirrhosis and hepatosplenomegaly during early infancy. A homozygous 3-bp deletion, resulting in the absence of serine at position 171 of the transaldolase protein was identified. Eyaid et al. (2013) (PMID: 23315216) reported 12 cases of transaldolase deficiency from 6 families. All had a single-bp deletion at c.793delC, which resulted in a frameshift with premature termination. All patients had multiple clinical features including hepatosplenomegaly, anemia, and thrombocytopenia. Seven of 12 had liver dysfunction. All 12 cases were diagnosed as children.
