Kabuki syndrome is a rare, multiple congenital anomaly/mental retardation syndrome caused by MLL2 point mutations and KDM6A microdeletions. We screened a large cohort of MLL2 mutation-negative patients for MLL2 and KDM6A exon(s) microdeletion and microduplication. Our assays failed to detect such rearrangements in MLL2 as well as in KDM6A gene. These results show that these genomic events are extremely rare in the Kabuki syndrome, substantiating its genetic heterogeneity and the search for additional causative gene(s).
