DEPDC5 variant in focal cortical dysplasia: a case report and review of the literature

Germline and 2-hit brain somatic variants in DEPDC5 gene, a negative regulator of the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) pathway, are increasingly recognized in patients with focal cortical dysplasia (FCD). Next-generation targeted sequencing identified a heterozygous germline variant in DEPDC5 gene (c.3241A>C, p.Thr1081Pro), classified as of unknown significance, in a patient with clinical features compatible with DEPDC5 phenotype (FCD, focal epilepsy, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder…
