Biallelic mutations of ERLIN1

Targeted gene(s)/phenotype under study :

  • Gene: ERLIN1 (OMIM #611604) 

Abstract :

To date, only three homozygous pathogenics variants of ERLIN1 have been reported in 4 families with either infantile-onset hereditary spastic paraparesis or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. We found a homozygous pathogenic variant in a child with spastic paraparesis and intellectual disability and wondered whether ID was a feature of the phenotype in youngest affected individuals.
For now, we collected the disease history of a few patients and wish to get more to precise the phenotypic spectrum associated with biallelic ERLIN1 variants.
