Congenital short bowel syndrome (CSBS) is an intestinal pediatric disorder, where patients are born with a dramatic shortened small intestine. Pathogenic variants in CLMP were recently identified to cause an autosomal recessive form of the disease. However, due to the rare nature of CSBS, only a small number of patients have been reported to date with variants in this gene. In this report, we describe novel inherited variants in CLMP in three CSBS patients derived from two unrelated families, confirming CLMP as the major gene involved in the development of the recessive form of CSBS.European Journal of Human Genetics advance online publication, 29 June 2016; doi:10.1038/ejhg.2016.58.
