PurposeThis study aimed to describe the phenotype of five new cases of NTRK2-related developmental and epileptic encephalopathy (DEE).
MethodsThe clinical features, EEG, neuroimaging and genetics were reviewed for cases with likely pathogenic and pathogenic NTRK2 variants and then summarized.
ResultsFive cases of NTRK2-related DEE were identified. Four had a previously described recurrent variant in NTRK2 and one had a novel variant. The phenotype was characterized by early- onset seizures (infantile spasms, later evolving to multifocal seizures), global developmental delay, variable movement disorders, microcephaly and optic nerve hypoplasia.
ConclusionsThis series further expands our knowledge of the phenotype and genotype of NTRK2-related DEE.
