Less than ten cases have been described in the literature.
Recurrent aspiration pneumonia and severe microcephaly have been reported occasionally.
The causative gene has not yet been identified.
Autosomal and X-linked recessive inheritance were initially suggested. Taking into consideration all reported cases so far, autosomal recessive inheritance seems most likely.
