Neurodevelopmental disorder with cardiomyopathy, spasticity, and brain abnormalities (NEDCASB; MIM# 619121) is a recently described metabolic disorder with characteristic features of mild dysmorphism, intellectual disability, spasticity, peripheral neuropathy, cardiomyopathy, and thin corpus callosum. Biallelic variants in SHMT2 (MIM 138450), encoding mitochondrial serine hydroxymethyltransferase enzyme, have been recently linked to this disorder. Till now, a total of seven variants including six missense and one deletion-insertion has been reported in SHMT2. We hereby report an additional individual with novel homozygous missense variant c.1133A > G in SHMT2 (NM_005412.6) identified by exome sequencing and review the phenotype and genotype of the previously reported individuals with NEDCASB.
