- germline mutations

  • germline mutation in the May-Hegglin anomaly (MIM.155100)
    • May-Hegglin anomaly is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by thrombocytopenia, giant platelets with few granules, and light blue inclusions peripherally located in the cytoplasm of granulocytes. The mutation is in the gene encoding non-muscle myosin heavy chain IIA (MYH9 ).
  • germline mutation in the Sebastian syndrome (MIM.605249)
  • germline mutation in the Fechtner syndrome (MIM.153640)
  • germline mutation in progressive hearing impairment with cochleosaccular degeneration (DFNA17) (MIM.603622)
  • germline mutation in Alport-like syndrome with macrothrombocytopenia (MIM.153650)
