Resumen

Background: The diagnostic process for uncommon disorders with similar manifestations is complicated and requires newer technology, like gene sequencing for a correct diagnosis. Main body: We described two brothers clinically diagnosed with Carpenter syndrome, which is a condition characterized by the premature fusion of certain skull bones (craniosynostosis), abnormalities of the fingers and toes, and other developmental problems, for which they underwent craniotomies. However, whole exome sequencing analysis concluded a novel pathological variation in the ATRX chromatin remodeler gene and protein remodeling demonstrated structural variations that decreased the function, giving a completely different diagnosis to these patients. Conclusion: Our study focuses on the importance of using newer technologies, such as whole exome sequencing analysis, in patients with ambiguous phenotypes.
