Green List (high evidence)

New gene added by reviewer. Promoted to green status. There are >3 unrelated cases of patients with familial dysalbuminemic hyperthyroxinemia. Most common variants in patients are R218H/R218P/R218S or R222I, which are in exon 7. These variants have an increased affinity for T4. This results in laboratory findings of elevated total T4 and elevated or normal free T4, with normal TSH, although patients are clinically euthyroid. The diagnosis of familial dysalbuminemic hyperthyroxinemia has important implications for clinical management, as it prevents inappropriate treatment for hyperthyroidism.
