A very rare cause of arthrogryposis multiplex congenita: a novel mutation in .

J Pediatr Endocrinol Metab 2022 Mar 16. Epub 2022 Mar 16.

Department of Medical Genetics, School of Medicine, Erciyes University, Kayseri, Turkey.

Objectives: Arthrogryposis multiplex congenita-5 (AMC5) is an autosomal recessive disease caused by homozygous or compound heterozygous mutations in the gene on chromosome 9q34. Congenital multiple joint contractures with microcephaly, typical facial dysmorphism, developmental delay, strabismus, tremor, and increased tone are the main characteristics defined in seven patients thus far. One third of the individuals with monoallelic mutations of the gene develop isolated early-onset dystonia (DYT1 dystonia), which is inherited in an autosomal dominant fashion, with variable expressivity and incomplete penetrance.
