With great interest we read the article by Diaz and colleagues1 providing further evidence of a neurodevelopmental disorder caused by bi-allelic variants disrupting the function of YIF1B, by reporting a second patient cohort and a mouse model. We had earlier reported 6 individuals from 5 unrelated families, harboring bi-allelic protein truncating mutations in YIF1B, presenting with a progressive encephalopathy with various degrees of movement disorders, microcephaly and epilepsy2.
