Cutis Laxa Type II with Mutation in the Pyrroline-5-Carboxylate Reductase 1 Gene



A 14-year-old Iranian boy with congenital cutis laxa and several other typical autosomal recessive type II features was examined. Mutation analysis of the pyrroline-5-carboxylate reductase 1 gene revealed a single-base deletion (c.345delC) in exon 4 leading to frame shift and premature termination of translation.
