A NEONATE PRESENTING WITH GRACILE SYNDROME AND BJORNSTAD PHENOTYPE ASSOCIATED WITH BCS1L MUTATION.Genet Couns. 2016; 27(4):509-512.GC
GRACILE Syndrome, is an autosomal recessive disease presenting with growth retardation, severe lactic acidosis, Fanconi type tubulopathy, cholestasis, iron overload and early death without any dysmorphological or neurological features. The BCSIL gene mutation is responsible for GRACILE syndrome, Bjornstad syndrome and complex III deficiency. Bjomstad syndrome is characterized by sensorineural hearing loss and abnormal flat twisted hair shafts. The case is GRACILE syndrome with Bjomstad phenotype in neonatal period due to BCSL1 gene mutation.
