  • Temtamy syndrome (TEMTYS) [MIM:218340]: A mental retardation/multiple congenital anomaly syndrome characterized by variable craniofacial dysmorphism, ocular coloboma, seizures, and brain abnormalities, including abnormalities of the corpus callosum and thalamus. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:23453665, ECO:0000269 PubMed:23453666, ECO:0000269 PubMed:23633300}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry. A variant resulting in a GUG start codon may be able to produce some protein because of a consensus Kozak sequence, although less efficiently than the wild type. This would explain the phenotypic variability observed.
