MED13-related disorder is a new neurodevelopmental disorder recently described in literature, which belongs to the group of CDK8-kinase module genes-associated conditions. It is characterized by variable intellectual disability and/or developmental delays, especially in language. Autism spectrum disorder (ASD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), eye or vision problems, hypotonia, mild congenital hearth abnormalities and dysmorphisms have been described among individuals with MED13 mutations. We report the case of a 13-year-old girl who received a previous clinical diagnosis of Kabuki syndrome (KS) without mutations in classic KS genes. After a whole exome sequencing (WES) analysis a de novo missense mutation in MED13 (c.C979T; p.Pro327Ser) was found. This variant has been once described in literature as accountable for a novel neurodevelopmental disorder. The aim of this report is to improve clinical delineation of MED13-related condition and to explore differences and similarities between KS spectrum and MED13-related disorders.
