Abstract [en]

CONTEXT: The LIM homeobox 3 (LHX3) LIM-homeodomain transcription factor gene, found in both man and mouse, is required for development of the pituitary and motor neurons, and is also expressed in the auditory system. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to determine the cause of, and further explore, the phenotype in six patients (aged 6 months to 22 yr) with combined pituitary hormone deficiency (CPHD), restricted neck rotation, scoliosis, and congenital hearing impairment. Three of the patients also have mild autistic-like behavior. DESIGN: Because patients with CPHD and restricted neck rotation have previously been shown to have mutations in the LHX3 gene, a candidate gene approach was applied, and the gene was sequenced. Neck anatomy was explored by computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging, including three-dimensional reformatting. RESULTS: A novel, recessive, splice-acceptor site mutation was found. The predicted protein encoded by the mutated gene lacks the homeodomain and carboxyl terminus of the normal, functional protein. Genealogical studies revealed a common gene source for all six families dating back to the 17th century. Anatomical abnormalities in the occipito-atlantoaxial joints in combination with a basilar impression of the dens axis were found in all patients assessed. CONCLUSIONS: This study extends both the mutations known to be responsible for LHX3-associated syndromes and their possible phenotypical consequences. Previously reported traits include CPHD and restricted neck rotation; patients examined in the present study also show a severe hearing defect. In addition, the existence of cervical vertebral malformations are revealed, responsible for the rigid neck and the development of scoliosis.
