Abstract
Since the beginning of the 21st century the field of Neurogenetics has exploded, generating novel concepts, unveiling mechanisms, and creating the basis for innovative molecule-targeted specific therapies for neurological disorders. Establishing a genetic diagnosis for any neurological condition is critical for understanding the natural course of the disease and managing accordingly; it shall no longer be viewed as medically unnecessary. This has created a paradigm shift towards reclassifying diseases based on the molecular features rather than signs and symptoms. Down syndrome, 22q11.2 deletion syndrome, Angelman syndrome, Prader Willi syndrome, Klinefelter syndrome, Turner syndrome, cri-du-chat (5p deletion), phenylketonuria, neurocutaneous disorders, Duchenne’s muscular dystrophy, Friedreich’s ataxia (1/50,000), myotonic dystrophy, Huntington’s disease(1/10,000), and Charcot- Marie-Tooth disease(1/3000) are among the most common hereditary neurological disorders which are fairly well-known. I would like to present four genetically confirmed cases that are much rarer, with their underlying mechanisms and management in the everyday clinical setting. These are cases which I have personally diagnosed and treated, such as horizontal gaze palsy with progressive sclerosis (HGPPS), Smith-Magenis syndrome (SMS), X-linked ichthyosis (XLI) and Phelan McDermid (PMD) syndrome, with review of the literature.
