Sarah Leigh (Genomics England Curator)

Red List (low evidence)

One CASP14 variant has been associated with Ichthyosis, congenital, autosomal recessive 12 (OMIM:617320), in two families sharing a haplotype. Palmoplantar keratodermas is not a feature of OMIM:617320

Zornitza Stark (Australian Genomics)

Red List (low evidence)

2 apparently unrelated Algerian families with the same variant and same haplotype reported, so gene-disease association is already not well-established. Patients had ichthyosis but not PPK. PPK is specifically reported NOT present in one patient.
