Abstract: Using exome sequencing we identify a homozygous splice site mutation in the PIGN gene in a foetus with multiple congenital anomalies including bilateral diaphragmatic hernia, cardiovascular anomalies, segmental renal dysplasia, facial dysmorphism, cleft palate, and oligodactyly. This finding expands the phenotypic spectrum associated with homozygous loss of function mutations in PIGN, and adds further support for defective GPI anchor biosynthesis as a cause of developmental abnormalities. We demonstrate that exome sequencing is a valuable approach for the identification of a genetic cause in sporadic cases of MCA due to inherited mutations.
