Özet

BackgroundPigmentary hypertrichosis and non-autoimmune insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (PHID) is one of the rare H syndrome diseases mainly characterized by hyperpigmentation, hypertrichosis, sensorineural hearing loss, cardiac complications, developmental delay, and diabetes mellitus (DM). Mutations in the coding regions of the SLC29A3 gene that encodes for an equilibrative nucleoside transporter (ENT3) have been reported to cause the phenotypic spectrum of the H syndrome. Disease-causing mutations in the untranslated regions (UTRs) of the SLC29A3 gene have not been previously described in the literature. The aim of the study is to describe and assess the pathogenicity of a novel 3'UTR mutation in the SLC29A3 gene associated with the PHID phenotype in two Turkish patients.
