Comment on list classification: Changed rating from red to grey: Histiocytoid cardiomyopathy is a cause of sudden death but mutations in this gene have ony been reported in one case: An infant girl who died of cardiac arrest at the age of 4 weeks and was found to have typical pathologic features of histiocytoid cardiomyopathy, Andreu et al. (2000, PMID:10960495) identified a point mutation in the MT-CYB gene, a G-to-A transition at nucleotide 15498, resulting in a gly251-to-asp substitution.
