CSDE1

Below is a summary for the CSDE1 gene observed in research publications. This is not meant to take the place of medical advice.

What is CSDE1-related syndrome?

CSDE1-related syndrome happens when there are changes to the CSDE1 gene. These changes can keep the gene from working as it should.

Key Role

The CSDE1 gene controls the activity of other genes that are important for brain growth.

Symptoms

Because the CSDE1 gene is important in the development and function of brain cells, many people who have CSDE1-related syndrome have:

  • Autism
  • Intellectual disability
  • Language and motor delay
  • Seizures
  • Large brain
  • Changes in the eyes

Do people who have CSDE1-related syndrome look different?

People who have CSDE1-related syndrome do not look very different. In one study of 14 people, 6 had a larger than average head size.

GeneReviews

GeneReviews are a great resource to bring to your child’s clinicians. These publications provide a summary of current research on genetic conditions and information on ongoing care.

There is currently no GeneReviews for CSDE1.

Research Article Summaries

We currently do not have any article summaries for CSDE1, but we add resources to our website as they become available.

The information available about CSDE1 is limited, and families and doctors share a critical need for more information. As we learn more from children who have this gene change, we expect our list of resources and information to grow.
