What's IRF2BPL Disorder?

Children with a mutation on IRF2BPL gene are born healthy. But as early as 2 year old, they begin to display progressive, severe neurodevelopmental regression. They commonly suffer from loss of ability to control their muscles and often develop seizures. In most severe cases, the children become unable to walk, stand, sit, speak or swallow as early as 3-5 years old and bound to a wheelchair and feeding tube.
