Comment on list classification: Removing from the skeletal ciliopathies panel as it is covered by the Bardet Biedl syndrome panel (panel ID: 543)

PMID: 28289185 - Bruel et al 2017 - report 1 case (patient 10) with compound heterozygous variants in WDPCP and an Oral-facial-digital syndrome phenotype which includes Post-axial polydactyly of the hands and syndactyly of the feet.

PMID: 27158779 - Toriyama et al 2016 - report 1 case of a 5-year-old male presenting with facial dysmorphism, tongue hamartoma, high arched palate, tooth abnormalities, and postaxial polydactyly. He was found to be compound heterozygous for two mutations in WDPCP, a frameshift and a missense variant predicted to alter splicing. Each parent had one of the variants. Functional studies in Xenopus MCCs and found that the frame-shift allele resulted in total loss of protein, while the point mutation led to a consistent but more modest defect in protein stability They also observed Y-shaped metacarpals and defects in tongue and palate morphology in Wdpcp mouse mutants

PMID: 25427950 - Saari et al 2015 - report 1 case of a girl with polysyndactyly, coarctation of the aorta, and tongue hamartomas. By whole exome sequencing they found she is a compound heterozygote for a frame shift mutation and a likely pathogenic sequence variant in WDPCP. The parents and two siblings were heterozygous carriers.

PMID: Kim et al 2010 - report 1 cases of a proband with a clinical diagnosis of BBS and a homozygous Fritz mutation that segregated with the disorder. Both parents and an unaffected sib were heterozygous carriers. No details

3 cases with oralfacial digitial syndrome type phenotypes and one with a clinical diagnosis of BBS.
