On this page, you will find information about a genetic change that was identified in a UDN participant. We are trying to find others with the same or similar condition.

Sharing information on this website is not a requirement of UDN participation. Only descriptions about participants who give explicit consent will appear here.

A change in the SPOP gene was identified in a male, age 17 with short stature, intellectual disability, heart disease, seizures, low testosterone, episodes of sporadic high and low blood pressure, hypogonadism, slow cognitive function, thrombocytopenia, kidney disease, osteoporosis, and spondyloarthritis (read full description).
