This gene is associated with Short-rib thoracic dysplasia 8 with or without polydactyly (#615503) only. In Gene2Phenotype it is associated with JEUNE SYNDROMES (confirmed) and SHORT-RIB POLYDACTYLY (confirmed)

PMID: 23910462 - McInerney-Leo et al 2013 - 2 cases. One in an Australian family with individual with SRPS type III. proband and one other family member affected. They detected two novel heterozygous mutations in WDR60, both were predicted to have a damaging effect on the protein. The mutations segregated appropriately in the unaffected parents and another affected family member. Second cases is of compound heterozygous mutations in WDR60 in a Spanish individual with Jeune syndrome of relatively mild presentation.

PMID: 25492405 - McInerney-Leo et al 2015 - whole exome sequencing of 11 probands with Short-rib thoracic dystrophies and their parents and siblings. A homozygous variant (c.1924CT p.Arg642*) in WDR60 was found in individual SKDP‐144.3. This paper also reports the previously found compound heterozygous variants in individual SKDP‐42.3 (from McInerney-Leo et al 2013).

PMID: 26874042 - Cossu et al 2016 - in a Sardinian family with Jeune syndrome, they identified a homozygous single nucleotide variation (c.2840 A > T, p.Gln947Leu; NM_018051.4) in the WDR60 gene, for which both parents and the unaffected brother resulted heterozygous. The patient of 23 years had a relatively mild phenotype. This variation has been predicted as “possibly damaging” by Polyphen-2 (0.863), as “damaging” by SIFT and as “disease causing” by Mutation Taster.

PMID: 29271569 - Kakar et al 2018 - consanguineous Pakistani pedigree with two adolescent sisters affected by retinal degeneration and postaxial polydactyly, but lack of any further skeletal or chondrodysplasia features. By targeted high-throughput sequencing of genes known or suspected to be involved in ciliogenesis, we detected a novel homozygous N-terminal truncating WDR60 mutation (c.44delC/p.Ala15Glufs*90) that co-segregated with the disease in the family.

Summary - 5 unrelated cases now reported.
