A novel OTX2 mutation in a patient with combined pituitary hormone deficiency, pituitary malformation, and an underdeveloped left optic nerve.


Orthodenticle homolog 2 (OTX2) is a homeobox family transcription factor required for brain and eye formation. Various genetic alterations in OTX2 have been described, mostly in patients with severe ocular malformations. In order to expand the knowledge of the spectrum of OTX2 mutation, we performed OTX2 mutation screening in 92 patients with combined… (More)
