The G327S variant in the ARSA gene has been previously reported in association with juvenile-onset MLD in two families where affected individuals were also heterozygous for another pathogenic variant in ARSA (Eng et. al, 2003; Cesani et al., 2015). This variant causes a non-conservative amino acid substituion in a conservative position and it is predicted to destroy the canonical splice donor site of intron 5. A missense variant in the same codon (G327C [G325C using alternative nomenclature]) is reported to cause aberrant splicing of ARSA mRNA (Gieselmann et. al, 1994). Therefore, we interpret G327S to be a pathogenic variant.
