Introduction: Wolfram syndrome (WS) is a rare progressive neurodegenerative disease that shows autosomal recessive inheritance characterized by diabetes insipidus, diabetes mellitus (DM), optic nerve atrophy and deafness. WFS1 gene encoding a protein, wolframin, which is essential to the function of the endoplasmic reticulum, is identified as main causative gene of the disease. We report here a sibling case suspected WS with insulin-dependent DM and optic atrophy in early chil...

Background: Achondroplasia is the most common form of human short-limbed dwarfism. The most serious complication in individuals with achondroplasia is narrowing of foramen magnum (FM) that results in cervicomedullary compression and sudden infant death. To avoid sudden infant death, early monitoring and implementation of the necessary medical intervention are important. However, the optimal method of screening for cervicomedullary compression continues to be debated.<p cla...

Background: Septo-optic dysplasia (SOD) is a rare disorder characterized by optic nerve hypoplasia, anterior midline abnormality and pituitary hormone deficiency. Mutations of several genes are known to cause SOD related condition, such as HESX1, SOX2, SOX3, and OTX2, but mutations of WDR11 has not been reported in SOD.Objective: Reporting the first SOD patient identified a mutation in WDR11.<p cl...
