Case analysis of epilepsy, neurodevelopmental disorder, and motor disorders associated with mutations in the dehydrodolichyl diphosphate synthase gene

The objective of this study is to analyze the role of dehydrodolichyl diphosphate synthase (DHDDS), a crucial enzyme in the mevalonate pathway, and its encoded mutations in the onset of developmental delay and seizures, with or without movement abnormalities. Its genotype-phenotype characteristics are still inconclusive. We analyzed the clinical characteristics of epilepsy, and neurodevelopmental and motor disorders related to DHDDS gene mutations and report the genotype-phenotype characteristics of a child with epilepsy caused by DHDDS gene mutation, providing a summary and a statistical analysis of epilepsy cases associated with DHDDS gene mutation up until February 2022.
