RESUMEN

Several patients with beta-propeller protein-associated neurodegeneration (BPAN)/static encephalopathy with neurodegeneration in adulthood have been reported to present Rett syndrome (RTT)-like features. This report presents an individual with BPAN showing clinical features of RTT. Psychomotor delay and epilepsy onset were noted at 1 year, and regression began at 4 years. Screening of the methyl-CpG binding protein 2 (MECP2) did not show variants. At 22 years, basal ganglia iron deposits were found on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and the WD-domain repeat 45 gene (WDR45) variant was identified. Review of the literature showed that BPAN with RTT-like features is associated with more epileptic seizures and less deceleration of head growth, breathing irregularities, and cold extremities than classic RTT with MECP2 variants. These clinical presentations may provide clues for differentiating between these two disorders. However, both WDR45 and MECP2 should be screened in patients presenting a clinical picture of RTT without specific MRI findings of BPAN.
