In a child of European and Spanish descent with Joubert syndrome-14 (JBTS14; 614424), Huang et al. (2011) identified compound heterozygosity for 2 mutations in the TMEM237 gene: a maternally inherited 76C-T transition, resulting in a gln26-to-ter (Q26X) substitution, and a paternally inherited G-to-T transversion in intron 11 (943+1G-T; 614423.0005), resulting in an in-frame deletion of 56 amino acids (exons 11 and 12). The mutations were not found in over 105 controls.
