Congenital mirror movements (CMM) is a disorder characterized by unintentional mirroring in homologous motor systems of voluntary movements on the opposite side, usually affecting the distal upper extremities. Genetic analyses have revealed involvement of three genes (DCC, RAD51, and DNAL4). We sought to distinguish whether different phenotypes of CMM exist, and if so, whether they might map to different causative genes. We studied 14 individuals across five families with dominantly-inherited… CONTINUE READING
