Bone marrow failure syndrome caused by homozygous frameshift mutation in the ERCC6L2 gene.

Abstract

Inherited bone marrow failure syndromes (IBMFS) are group of disorders that lead to inadequate production of blood cells. Mutations in genes involved in telomere maintenance, DNA repair, and the cell cycle cause IBMFS. ERCC6L2 gene mutations have been associated with bone marrow failure that includes developmental delay and microcephaly. We report two cases of bone marrow failure with no extra-hematopoietic manifestations in patients from unrelated families with a homozygous truncating mutation in ERCC6L2. Bone marrow failure without developmental delay or microcephaly with ERCC6L2 mutation has not been previously described.
