Abstract

We have examined the molecular basis of Segawa's syndrome in six families with seven affected children. In one family two siblings with this disease carried a point mutation in exon 11 of the tyrosine hydroxylase gene, resulting in an amino acid exchange of Gln381 to Lys381. These results suggest that a change in tyrosine hydroxylase causes this form of Segawa's syndrome.
