Deletion of WT1 and mild genital changes (usually) can be part of WAGR syndrome. Typically exon 9 splice mutations cause Frasier syndrome, with testicular dysgenesis, gonadoblastoma risk, severe underandrogenization, and milder renal abnormalities such a FSGS. Other changes (often point mutations in zinc fingers) cause Denys-Drash syndrome, with severe hypospadias, MCGS, and Wilms Tumor risk. Meacham syndrome with diaphragmatic hernia also reported. There can be phenotypic and genotypic overlap. Careful consideration needed for reporting back as counselling needed for tumor risk and associated features.
