The variant is present in the large control population dataset of ExAC at a frequency 0.0004 (48/120640 chrs tested), predominantly in individuals of African origin (0.0045; 44/9792 chrs tested). This frequency exceeds the estimated maximal expected allele frequency of a pathogenic variant in ALMS1 gene (0.0022). The variant is present in a control population dataset of gmomAD predominantly in individuals of African origin: 0.0045 (117/ 25854 chrs); however, since the data set is still in beta mode, this data was not captured in pbGP. The c. 3729G>A has not, to our knowledge, been reported in affected individuals via published reports, but is cited as Likely Benign by a reputable database/clinical laboratory. The variant seems to be an ethnic specific polymorphism, therefore it has been classified as Benign.
