Ivone Leong (Genomics England Curator)

Comment on list classification: New gene added by Zornitza Stark. This gene is associated with a relevant phenotype in OMIM and not Gene2Phenotype. There is enough evidence to support a gene-disease association. This gene should be rated Green at the next review.

Panel Version: 1.28
Comment on publications: PMID: 33526876 reports an additional unrelated case. Patient is of Haitian descent (previous cases described in PMID:29909964 are of Vietnamese and Kuwaiti origins). Patient has neonatal onset diarrhoea with metabolic acidosis and failure to thrive. Patient also has bilateral microcornea and corneal clouding. Patient also presented with ambiguous genitalia and diagnosed with 46,XX testicular DSD.

The authors reviewed the clinical findings of the previous patients they had reported on (PMID:29909964) and found that the Kuwaiti patients had bilateral microcornea, corneal neovascularization and thick corneas (I-2), and bilateral iridocorneal adhesions, congenital cataract, and iris coloboma (I-3). The gonadal findings in the Haitian patient was not seen in any of the other affected patients.

Green List (high evidence)

Diarrhoea-9 is a form of neonatal-onset chronic diarrhoea characterized by an osmotic diarrhoea that is not substrate specific, abnormal crypt and villus architecture, and significant fat malabsorption. Three probands from two unrelated families and functional data suggesting severe intestinal dysregulation due to decreased intestinal stem cell number and function.

Borderline Green/Amber.
