KOL-Index: 85 Joubert syndrome (JS) is a recessive neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by hypotonia, ataxia, abnormal eye movements, and variable cognitive impairment. It is defined by a distinctive brain malformation known as the "molar tooth sign" on axial MRI. Subsets of affected individuals have malformations such as coloboma, polydactyly, and encephalocele, as well as progressive retinal ...

KOL-Index: 71 Larsen syndrome is characterized by the dislocation of large joints and other less consistent clinical findings. Heterozygous FLNB mutations account for the majority of Larsen syndrome cases, but biallelic mutations in CHST3 and B4GALT7 have been more recently described, thus confirming the existence of recessive forms of the disease. In a multiplex consanguineous Saudi family affected by ...

KOL-Index: 49 PURPOSE: To investigate genetics, electrophysiology, and clinical course of KCNV2-associated retinopathy in a cohort of children and adults. STUDY DESIGN: This was a multicenter international clinical cohort study. METHODS: Review of clinical notes and molecular genetic testing. Full-field electroretinography (ERG) recordings, incorporating the international standards, were reviewed and ...

KOL-Index: 42 Joubert syndrome (JS) is a ciliopathy that is defined primarily by typical cerebellar structural and ocular motility defects. The genetic heterogeneity of this condition is significant with 16 genes identified to date. We have used a combination of autozygome-guided candidate gene mutation analysis and exome sequencing to identify the causative mutation in a series of 12 families. The ...

KOL-Index: 41 PURPOSE: Some individuals are born with congenital limitation of ocular motility, often associated with ptosis and retraction of the globe. Many of these disorders are now known as the congenital cranial dysinnervation disorders (CCDDs). While several genes have been associated with CCDD phenotypes, there are still patients for whom the genetic basis has not been identified. METHODS: ...

KOL-Index: 40 PURPOSE: To highlight recognizable patterns of subretinal fibrosis in enhanced S-cone syndrome (ESCS). DESIGN: Retrospective case series. PARTICIPANTS: Forty-seven patients with subretinal fibrosis identified from 101 patients with clinically diagnosed ESCS, confirmed by full-field electroretinography (35/47), genetic testing (34/47), or both. METHODS: Multimodal retinal imaging, ...

KOL-Index: 37 PurposeTo describe our experience with a large cohort (411 patients from 288 families) of various forms of skeletal dysplasia who were molecularly characterized.MethodsDetailed phenotyping and next-generation sequencing (panel and exome).ResultsOur analysis revealed 224 pathogenic/likely pathogenic variants (54 (24%) of which are novel) in 123 genes with established or tentative links to ...

KOL-Index: 36 BACKGROUND: Duane retraction syndrome (DRS) is the most common of the congenital cranial dysinnervation disorders (CCDDs). CCDDs can be monogenic or chromosomal in origin. Identification of the genetic cause(s) in patients and families with DRS facilitates definitive diagnosis and provides insights into these developmental errors. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study described a young girl with ...

KOL-Index: 35 Biallelic mutations in the nuclear gene LONP1 (LON peptidase 1, mitochondrial) cause CODAS syndrome (cerebral, ocular, dental, auricular, and skeletal anomalies), a systemic disease that can include infantile cataract. However, we have found that biallelic mutations in the gene can also underlie infantile cataract in the setting of minimal or no apparent extraocular findings. This report ...

KOL-Index: 35 Congenital cranial dysinnervation disorders are phenotypes of incomitant strabismus and/or ptosis. Recessive mutations in COL25A1 are a recently reported cause, but the associated ophthalmic phenotypes have not been detailed. We highlight phenotypes of the 4 affected children from the 2 reported families: isolated congenital ptosis (one unilateral, one bilateral) and Duane syndrome (one ...
