Abstract

Mutations in the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) have been shown to cause typical cystic fibrosis (CF) and several milder phenotypes. We report on two asymptomatic sisters who had isolated increased sweat chloride concentrations, and in whom systematic scanning of the whole coding region of the CFTR gene revealed the F508del/S1455X genotype.
