IRF2BPL-related regressive neurodevelopmental disorder-dystonia-seizures syndrome
A rare genetic neurological disorder characterized by childhood onset of severe global neurodevelopmental regression with eventual loss of independent walking and loss of language and fine and gross motor skills and development of severe dysphagia requiring tube feeding seizures cerebellar syndrome dystonia and other neurologic manifestations. Brain imaging shows progressive cerebral and/or cerebellar atrophy in most cases. A less severe phenotype associated with missense mutations shows no regression or movement abnormalities ambulation is preserved and brain imaging is normal.
