OBJECTIVES The study was focused on leukoencephalopathies of unknown cause in order to define a novel, homogeneous phenotype suggestive of a common genetic defect, based on clinical and MRI findings, and to identify the causal genetic defect shared by patients with this phenotype. METHODS Independent next-generation exome-sequencing studies were performed(More)
The congenital myopathies are a group of disorders characterised by the predominance of specific histological features observed in biopsied muscle. Central core disease and nemaline myopathy are examples of congenital myopathies that have specific histological characteristics but significantly overlapping clinical pictures. Central core disease is an(More)
A number of families with X linked dilated cardiomyopathy with onset in infancy or childhood have now been described, with varying clinical and biochemical features. Of these, one condition, Barth syndrome (BTHS), can be diagnosed clinically by the characteristic associated features of skeletal myopathy, short stature, and neutropenia, but not all of these(More)

SOX10 is a transcription factor with well-known functions in neural crest and oligodendrocyte development. Mutations in SOX10 were first associated with Waardenburg-Hirschsprung disease (WS4; deafness, pigmentation defects and intestinal aganglionosis). However, variable phenotypes that extend beyond the WS4 definition are now reported. The neurological(More)
