Nakhaei S, Heidary H, Rahimian A, Vafadar M, Rohani F, Bahoosh G et al . A New Case of Chanarin-Dorfman Syndrome with a Novel Deletion in ABHD5 Gene. ibj. 2018; 22 (6) :415-419

Chanarin-Dorfman syndrome (CDS) is a rare autosomal recessive metabolic disorder caused by mutations in gene encoding the domain-5 of α/β-hydrolase enzyme (ABHD5). It is known as a natural lipid storage disorder arising from impaired lipid metabolism often characterized by hepatomegaly, myopathy, ataxia, non-bullous ichthyosiform erythroderma, hearing loss, and mental retardation. In the present study, we report two affected 28-month-old monozygotic twin boys as new cases of CDS. Genetic analysis was performed in patients, and the results showed a homozygote deletion in exon 4 of ABHD5. According to the the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics, this variant is categorized as a pathogenic variant.
