In this study we report previously undescribed associations between mutations, hapIotypes and a minisatellite polymorphism (Hind III VNTR) of the PAH gene in the Sicilian population. Analysis of the association between mutations and linked polymorphisms between Sicilians and other Mediterranean populations may be a useful tool to study the time-space origin of mutant PAH genes in Southern Europe.
