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 this gene was identified in an undiagnosed male, age 3, with neurodevelopmental delay, previously refractory focal epilepsy that is now well controlled, brain MRI abnormalities, and other physical differences related to the eyes, ears, and nose (read full description).
