Terminal and interstitial deletions of 2p25.3 (size < Mb), detected by array-CGH analysis, have been reported in about 18 patients sharing common clinical features represented by early-onset obesity/ overweightness associated with intellectual disabilities (ID) and behavioural troubles. This observations led to hypothesize that 2p subtelomeric deletion should be associated with syndromic obesity and MYT1L became the main candidate gene for ID and obesity since it is deleted or disrupted in all hitherto published cases. Here we described a…
