Keppen-Lubinsky syndrome characterised by severely delayed psychomotor development, hypertonia, hyperreflexia, generalized lipodystrophy giving an aged appearance, and distinctive dysmorphic features, including microcephaly, prominent eyes, narrow nasal bridge, and open mouth.
Four unrelated individuals reported with de novo variants in this gene (one recurred in 2), mouse model. One of the individuals did not have lipodystrophy but had a prominent hyperkinetic movement disorder.
