Abstract

We report the case of a 15-month-old male suffering from Late Onset Congenital Central Hypoventilation Syndrome and recto-sigmoid Hirschsprung's disease, an association that has not been reported thus far. Nevertheless, our patient showed a missense mutation of the PHOX2B gene already known in isolated late onset central hypoventilation, resulting in a substitution of the Ala140 residue with a Glu residue (p.A140E). The present association of LO-CHS and HSCR in a patient harboring a rare and atypical PHOX2B mutation allows to refine the mutational spectrumof this disease and suggests individualized ventilatory care along with specific surgical and oncological approaches.
