  • Joubert syndrome 30 (JBTS30) [MIM:617622]: A form of Joubert syndrome, a disorder presenting with cerebellar ataxia, oculomotor apraxia, hypotonia, neonatal breathing abnormalities and psychomotor delay. Neuroradiologically, it is characterized by cerebellar vermian hypoplasia/aplasia, thickened and reoriented superior cerebellar peduncles, and an abnormally large interpeduncular fossa, giving the appearance of a molar tooth on transaxial slices (molar tooth sign). Additional variable features include retinal dystrophy, renal disease, liver fibrosis, and polydactyly. JBTS30 inheritance is autosomal recessive. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:28625504}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
