Laboratory for Molecular Medicine, Partners HealthCare Personalized Medicine RCV001195537 SCV001365916 likely pathogenic Bardet-Biedl syndrome 2019-12-04 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The p.Trp99X variant in IFT172 has not been previously reported in individuals with short-rib thoracic dysplasia or in large population studies. This nonsense variant leads to a premature termination codon at position 99, which is predicted to lead to a truncated or absent protein. Additionally, this variant is located in the last three bases of the exon, which is part of the 5’ splice region. Computational tools predict a splicing impact. Homozygous or compound heterozygous pathogenic variants in the IFT172 gene have been shown to cause autosomal recessive ciliopathies including, short-rib thoracic dysplasia and Bardet Biedel syndrome (Halbritter 2013, Bujakowska 2015). In summary, although additional studies are required to fully establish its clinical significance, this variant meets criteria to be classified as likely pathogenic for autosomal recessive short-rib thoracic dysplasia. ACMG/AMP Criteria applied: PVS1, PM2.
