Novel De Novo KCND3 Mutation in a Japanese Patient with Intellectual Disability, Cerebellar Ataxia, Myoclonus, and Dystonia

Novel De Novo KCND3 Mutation in a Japanese Patient with Intellectual Disability, Cerebellar... Spinocerebellar ataxia 19/22 (SCA19/22) is a rare type of autosomal dominant SCA that was previously described in 11 families. We report the case of a 30-year-old Japanese man presenting with intellectual disability, early onset cerebellar ataxia, myoclonus, and dystonia without a family history. MRI showed cerebellar atrophy, and electroencephalograms showed paroxysmal sharp waves during hyperventilation and photic stimulation. Trio whole-exome sequencing analysis of DNA samples from the patient and his parents revealed a de novo novel missense mutation (c.1150G>A, p.G384S) in KCND3, the causative gene of SCA19/22, substituting for evolutionally conserved glycine. The mutation was predicted to be functionally deleterious by bioinformatic analysis. Although pure cerebellar ataxia is the most common clinical feature in SCA19/22 families, extracerebellar symptoms including intellectual disability and myoclonus are reported in a limited number of families, suggesting a genotype–phenotype correlation for particular mutations. Although autosomal recessive diseases are more common in patients with early onset sporadic cerebellar ataxia, the present study emphasizes that such a possibility of de novo mutation should be considered. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The Cerebellum Springer Journals

Abstract

Spinocerebellar ataxia 19/22 (SCA19/22) is a rare type of autosomal dominant SCA that was previously described in 11 families. We report the case of a 30-year-old Japanese man presenting with intellectual disability, early onset cerebellar ataxia, myoclonus, and dystonia without a family history. MRI showed cerebellar atrophy, and electroencephalograms showed paroxysmal sharp waves during hyperventilation and photic stimulation. Trio whole-exome sequencing analysis of DNA samples from the patient and his parents revealed a de novo novel missense mutation (c.1150G>A, p.G384S) in KCND3, the causative gene of SCA19/22, substituting for evolutionally conserved glycine. The mutation was predicted to be functionally deleterious by bioinformatic analysis. Although pure cerebellar ataxia is the most common clinical feature in SCA19/22 families, extracerebellar symptoms including intellectual disability and myoclonus are reported in a limited number of families, suggesting a genotype–phenotype correlation for particular mutations. Although autosomal recessive diseases are more common in patients with early onset sporadic cerebellar ataxia, the present study emphasizes that such a possibility of de novo mutation should be considered.
