There appears to be no enfermedaad difference in the severity associated with whole- or partial-gene deletions and the clinical spectrum reported for small intragenic PAX3 pathogenic variants [ Milunsky et al ]. Badner and Chakravarti concluded, however, that a single dominant gene with pleiotropic effects, with a more severe phenotype in homozygotes, was more plausible.
