Sotos Syndrome

Publication:
European Journal of Human Genetics (2007) 15, 264–271.

Authors:
Katrina Tatton-Brown and Nazneen Rahman

Abstract:
Sotos syndrome is an autosomal dominant condition characterised by a distinctive facial appearance, learning disability and overgrowth resulting in tall stature and macrocephaly. In 2002, Sotos syndrome was shown to be caused by mutations and deletions of NSD1, which encodes a histone methyltransferase implicated in chromatin regulation. More recently, the NSD1 mutational spectrum has been defined, the phenotype of Sotos syndrome clarified and diagnostic and management guidelines developed.
