Trichothiodystrophy, non-photosensitive type 4 (TTD4), is a rare genetic disorder with an autosomal recessive mode of inheritance. It is characterized by coarse and brittle hair, anomalies of the tissues derived from the neuro-ectoderm (skin, hair, and nails) and intellectual disability. We herein report two male siblings aged 13 and 16 years with TTD4 and a known homozygous pathogenic variant, c.229del [p.(Arg77Glyfs*76)] in exon 1 of MPLKIP (NM_138701.3). We herein highlight the clinical and molecular findings of the first reported case of TTD4 in probands of Indian ethnicity.
