© 2015 John Wiley & Sons A/S. Published by John Wiley & Sons Ltd.We report two Colombian siblings affected by overgrowth, intellectual disability and facial dysmorphism. Exome (via NGS) and Sanger sequencing revealed that biallelic sequence variants in a novel gene (HERC1) might be related to the disease pathogenesis. These results provide useful data for future genotype-phenotype correlations and for a molecular diagnosis of overgrowth.
