Objective: Biallelic variants in RARS1, encoding the cytoplasmic tRNA synthetase for arginine (ArgRS), cause a hypomyelinating leukodystrophy. This study aimed to investigate clinical, neuroradiological and genetic features of patients with RARS1-related disease, and to identify possible genotype-phenotype relationships. Methods: We performed a multinational cross-sectional survey among 20 patients with biallelic RARS1 variants identified by next-generation sequencing techniques. Clinical data, ...

The lipid phosphatase gene FIG4 is responsible for Yunis-Varon syndrome and Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease Type 4J, a peripheral neuropathy. We now describe four families with FIG4 variants and prominent abnormalities of central nervous system (CNS) white matter (leukoencephalopathy), with onset in early childhood, ranging from severe hypomyelination to mild undermyelination, in addition to peripheral neuropathy. Affected individuals inherited biallelic FIG4 variants from heterozygous parents. Cult...

Alexander disease (AD) is a leukodystrophy caused by heterozygous mutations in the gene encoding the glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP). Currently, de novo heterozygous missense mutations in the GFAP gene are identified in over 95% of patients with AD. However, patients with biopsy-proven AD have been reported in whom no GFAP mutation has been identified. We report identical twin boys presenting in infancy with seizures and developmental delay in whom MR appearances were suggestive of AD wit...
