INTRODUCTION Whole exome sequencing is a diagnostic approach for the identification of molecular etiology in patients with suspected monogenic diseases. In this article we report on our experience with whole-exome sequencing (WES) of DNA samples taken from patients referred for genetic evaluation due to suspected undiagnosed genetic conditions.

We describe a Bedouin family with a novel autosomal recessive syndrome characterized by dilated cardiomyopathy and septo-optic dysplasia. Genetic analysis revealed a homozygous missense mutation in TAX1BP3, which encodes a small PDZ domain containing protein implicated in regulation of the Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway, as the causative mutation. The(More)
In this study, we report a family with X-linked recessive syndrome caused by mutated AMMECR1 and characterized by elliptocytosis with or without anemia, midface hypoplasia, proportionate short stature and hearing loss. Recently, mutations in AMMECR1 were reported in two maternal half-brothers, presenting with nephrocalcinosis, midface hypoplasia and, in one(More)
Mutation in the insulin-like growth factor-1 receptor (IGF1R) gene is a rare cause for intrauterine and postnatal growth disorders. Patients identified with IGF1R mutations present with either normal or impaired glucose tolerance. None of the cases described so far showed hypoglycemia. We aimed to identify the genetic basis for small for gestational age,(More)
Purpose: To present the genetic cause of progressive deterioration in visual acuity and color vision in a child with high myopia and strabismus. Here we describe a novel x-linked mutation in the opsin 1 medium-wave-sensitive (OPN1MW) gene in a child, leading to cone rod dystrophy. Setting/Venue: Trio whole-exome sequencing (WES). Methods: We reviewed the(More)
