Red List (low evidence)

Homozygous deletion of exon 3 of FBXL7 (predicted to be in-frame) in a 2-year old with novel form of Hennekam syndrome. Each parent was heterozygous.
Patient had lymphedema, protein‐losing enteropathy, dental anomalies, camptodactyly, microtia, small auditory canals, ductive hearing loss, middle ear anomalies, bifid scrotum, and facial dysmorphic features including hypertelorism, telecanthus, epicanthal folds, downslanting palpebral fissures, broad and depressed nasal bridge, and thickened nasal alae.
