Bainbridge-Roper syndrome: A rare case of developmental delay
Dr. Amit Vatkar, Dr. Nisha Dolas, Dr. Kanmani K and Dr. Vijay Kamale
ASXL3 mutations were first identified in 2013 by Bainbridge et al. as a cause of syndromic intellectual disability in four children with similar phenotypes using whole-exome sequencing. The clinical features – postulated by Bainbridge et al. were developmental delay, severe feeding difficulties, failure to thrive and neurological abnormalities. To date, a total of nine individuals with BRPS have been published in the literature in four reports (Bainbridge et al., Dinwiddie et al, Srivastava et al. and Hori et al.). In this report, we describe an uncertain variant present in Exon 11 of ASXL3(+) heterozygous zygosity in a female child with clinical features: truncal muscular hypotonia with significant motor delay, profound speech impairment, intellectual disability and a characteristic dysmorphic facies phenotype (open mouth, full lips, depressed nasal bridge, metopic prominence, microcephaly (45.5.cm), with camptodactyly and dysplastic fingers). Hence, we are reporting a rare case of developmental delay.
