Abstract

Biallelic pathogenic variants in CA8 cause cerebellar ataxia, mental retardation and dysequilibrium syndrome 3 (CAMRQ3), a rare form of hereditary ataxia characterised by cerebellar hypoplasia/atrophy, variable intellectual disability and often quadrupedal gait. The few cases reported in the medical literature are all caused by pathogenic homozygous or compound heterozygous missense variants in CA8. We report a 9 year-old boy with marked gross motor delay, ataxia and progressive cerebellar atrophy with limited bipedal gait, but without intellectual disability. Singleton whole exome sequencing was performed. A novel homozygous truncating variant in CA8 (c.232C>T) with a predicted premature te..
