Abstract

Although whole-exome sequencing (WES) is the gold standard for the diagnosis of neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs), it remains expensive for some genetic centers. Commercialized panels comprising all OMIM-referenced genes called "medical exome" (ME) constitute an alternative strategy to WES, but its efficiency is poorly known. In this study, we report the experience of 2 clinical genetic centers using ME for diagnosis of NDDs. We recruited 216 consecutive index patients with NDDs in 2 French genetic centers, corresponded to the daily practice of the units and included non-syndromic intellectual disability (NSID, n = 33), syndromic ID (NSID = 122), pediatric neurodegenerative disorders (n = 7) and autism spectrum disorder (ASD, n = 54). We sequenced samples from probands and their parents (when available) with the Illumina TruSight One sequencing kit. We found pathogenic or likely pathogenic variants in 56 index patients, for a global diagnostic yield of 25.9%. The diagnosis yield was higher in patients with ID as the main diagnosis (32%) than in patients with ASD (3.7%). Our results suggest that the use of ME is a valuable strategy for patients with ID when WES cannot be used as a routine diagnosis tool.
