Previous reports noted the following symptoms at clinical diagnosis: (i) severe intellectual disability, with absent or limited speech; (ii) early-onset hypotonia with slow motor development; (iii) progressive spasticity predominantly of the lower limbs; (iv) predisposition to recurrent respiratory infections; (v) epilepsy, and (vi) other variably present characteristics, including autistic features, gastrointestinal dysfunction, and mild facial dysmorphism [5].
Mutant mice deficient in Kat6b are reported to develop poorly, exhibiting growth retardation, facial dysmorphism, skeletal abnormalities, and developmental brain anomalies, leading to their designation as "Querkopf" ("Strange head") mice [69].
Kleefstra syndrome is a recently identified cause of intellectual disability with associated childhood hypotonia and distinctive facial dysmorphism. More than 75% of the cases reported in the literature have been found to have a subtelomeric deletion at chromosome 9q34.3 while the remaining cases are due to a heterozygous pathogenic variant of the EHMT1 gene [4].
