Abstract

We report a Japanese girl with mild xeroderma pigmentosum group D neurological disease. She had short stature, cataracts, intellectual disability, and mild skin symptoms. However, she was not clinically diagnosed. Using whole-exome sequencing, we identified compound heterozygous pathogenic variants in ERCC2. In the future, the patient may develop skin cancer and her neurological symptoms may progress. Early genetic testing is necessary to clarify the cause of symptoms in undiagnosed patients.
