Two cases of Vici syndrome presenting with corpus callosum agenesis, albinism, and severe developmental delay

Background. Vici syndrome is a rare autosomal recessive disease with phenotypically heterogeneous presentation. Characteristic features of the disease are oculocutaneous albinism, corpus callosum agenesis, cataract, cardiomyopathy, and immunodeficiency.Case. Here we report two Turkish patients with Vici syndrome. One of these patients had a novel mutation in EPG5 and presented with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) and maculopapular rashes similar to Stevens–Johnson syndrome, which has been previously reported in only a few cases in the literature. Conclusion. Vici syndrome presents with a typical phenotype which may facilitate diagnosis for infants with multisystemic disorders. ITP and maculopapular rashes might be added to the spectrum of findings of patients with Vici syndrome.
