[3120+1kbdel8.6kb]+[p.N1303K] GENOTYPE IN AN EMIRATI CYSTIC FIBROSIS PATIENT: INDICATION OF A FOUNDER MUTATION IN PALESTINIAN ARABS
AbstractCystic fibrosis (CF) is the most common life-limiting autosomal recessive disorder in Caucasianpopulation. The disease was initially considered to be rare in Middle Eastern countries. 95% of CFin Emirati families is due to two mutations only – p.S549R(T>G) and p.F508del. We report herethe case of a patient referred to CF and Respiratory Clinic at Tawam Hospital for cystic fibrosistransmembrane regulator (CFTR) gene screening to ascertain the diagnosis of CF, who was foundto carry a unique genotype, signifying the importance of retrieving ancestral histories of patientswith monogenic disordersKeywords: Cystic Fibrosis, autosomal recessive disorder, Genotype
