Abstract: The IQSEC2- related disorders represent a spectrum of X-chromosome phenotypes with intellectual disability (ID) as the cardinal feature. Here, we review the increasing number of reported families and isolated cases have been reported with a variety of different pathogenic variants. The spectrum of clinical features is expanding with early-onset seizures as a frequent comorbidity in both affected male and female patients. There is a growing number of female patients with de novo loss-of-function variants in IQSEC2 have a more severe phenotype than the heterozygous state would predict, particularly if IQSEC2 is thought to escape X-inactivation. Interestingly, these findings highlight that the classical understanding of X-linked inheritance does not readily explain the emergence of these affected females, warranting further investigations into the underlying mechanisms.
