Targeted syndrom under study



We have identified a small series of individuals with de novo or inherited likely pathogenic heterozygous MYO18A variants.  The phenotype is intellectual disability with epilepsy in some.  We would like to identify further individuals to confirm or refute this as a potential novel neurodevelopmental disorder.
