Characteristics: Lysosomal storage disease causing hepatosplenomegaly, delayed physical and mental growth, hypotonia, rigidity, mental retardation, and death by age 3.
Incidence: 1 in 32,000 Ashkenazi Jewish individuals, unknown in other ethnicities.
Inheritance: Autosomal recessive.
Cause: PathogenicSMPD1 gene mutations.
Mutations Tested: p.L304P (c.911T>C), p.F333Sfs (c.996delC), p.R498L (c.1493G>T), and p.R610del (c.1829_1831delGCC).
Clinical Sensitivity: 99 percent in Ashkenazi Jewish individuals, unknown in other ethnicities.
Methodology: Multiplex polymerase chain reaction and Detection Primer Extension.
Analytical Sensitivity and Specificity: Greater than 99 percent.
Limitations: Mutations other than those tested will not be detected. Diagnostic errors can occur due to rare sequence variations.
