The girl had been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, and Bernier had invited the family in to discuss the results of a genetic analysis his collaborator, geneticist Evan Eichler, had performed in search of the cause.

NIH Researchers Discover Otulipenia, a New Inflammatory Disease

This is an interesting article about a lethal disease caused by a genetic abnormality. A single gene on Chromosome 5 was identified as the cause of the problem.
