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 TAOK1 gene was identified in a UDN participant with very low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), developmental delay, and birth defects (tetralogy of Fallot, Chiari I malformation, tethered cord) (read full description).

Date of Report
