The variant of interest was observed in the large, broad control population, ExAC, with an allele frequency of 115/120804 (1/1052, 1 homozygote), predominantly observed in the South Asian cohort, 92/16490 (1/179, 1 homozygote), which exceeds the estimated maximal expected allele frequency for a pathogenic HEXB variant of 1/676. Therefore, suggesting the variant is a common polymorphism found in population(s) of South Asian origin. The variant of interest has been reported in multiple affected and healthy homozygous individuals via publications. Functional studies have shown that the variant of interest is a heat labile allele, meaning that it leads to reduction in enzyme activity and mightresult in a false non-TSD or non-SD diagnosis. Likewise, a doubly heterozygous person, for TSD and for HLB, could be misdiagnosed as a normal homozygote. In addition, multiple reputable clinical diagnostic laboratories/databases cite the variant as "benign," along with the reporting cautionary awareness for the heat labile aspect. Therefore, to indicate the potential for the variant to cause false negative results, a classification of "Probable Normal Variant/Likely Benign," has been assigned to this variant.
