|Abstract:||The aim of this study is to report the evolution of a phenotype in members of a single family carrying the heterozygous exon 1 c.178 C/G, p.Arg 60 Gly LMNA gene mutation. All mutated family members underwent neurological and cardiological assessments for a period ranging from 10 to 20 years. At onset, 4 affected adult members presented a phenotype that required pacemaker implantation. Three subjects underwent cardiac transplantation leading to long-term survival in 2 of them. One of the 3 longest surviving relatives manifested late lipodystrophy, and the other 2 had lipodystrophy, insulin-resistant diabetes, and distal peripheral neuropathy. The findings demonstrate that the exon 1 c.178 C/G, p.Arg 60 Gly LMNA gene mutation is associated with a novel phenotype featuring cardiac involvement followed by late lipodystrophy, diabetes, and peripheral axonal neuropathy.|
