Laboratory for Molecular Medicine, Partners HealthCare Personalized Medicine RCV000169684 SCV000221222 pathogenic Diabetes mellitus AND insipidus with optic atrophy AND deafness 2013-11-19 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The Arg42X variant in WFS1 has not been previously identified in individuals with Wolfram syndrome, but has been identified in 0.02% (1/8540) of European American chromosomes by the NHLBI Exome Sequencing Project (; dbSNP rs71530923). Although this variant has been seen in the general population, its frequency is low enough to be consistent with a pathogenic interpretation. This nonsense variant leads to a premature termination codon at position 42, which is predicted to lead to a truncated or absent protein. Heterozygous carries of pathogenic WFS1 variants may be at risk for developing low frequency sensorineural hearing loss and/or diabetes mellitus (Ohata 1998, Sandhu 2007, Franks 2008). In summary, this variant meets our criteria to be classified as pathogenic (
