Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The identification of de novo dominant mutations in KMT2D (MLL2) as the main cause of Kabuki syndrome has shed new light on the pathogenesis of this well delineated condition consisting of a peculiar facial appearance, short stature, organ malformations and a varying degree of intellectual disability. Mutation screening studies have confirmed KMT2D as the major causative gene for Kabuki syndrome and have at the same time provided evidence for its genetic heterogeneity. In this review, we aim to summarize the current clinical and molecular genetic knowledge on Kabuki syndrome, provide genotype-phenotype correlations, and propose a strategic clinical and molecular diagnostic approach for patients with suspected Kabuki syndrome.
