To address this issue, we searched our genetic data of families with autosomal dominant HL (ADHL) who had been tested with high-throughput DNA sequencing methods. For CD164, only one pathogenic variant in one family has so far been reported. For LMX1A, just two previous studies have revealed its involvement in ADHL. In this study we found two families with the same pathogenic variant in CD164 and one family with a novel variant in LMX1A (c.686C>A; p.(Ala229Asp)) that impairs its transcriptional activity. Our data show recurrence of the same CD164 variant in two HL families of different geographic origin, which strongly suggests it is a mutational hotspot. We also provide further evidence for haploinsufficiency as the pathogenic mechanism underlying LMX1A-related ADHL.
