Background: Discordant results were reported on the clinical expression of subjects bearing the D1152H CFTR mutation, and also for the small number of cases reported so far. Methods: A retrospective review of clinical, genetic and biochemical data was performed from individuals homozygous or compound heterozygous for the D115211 mutation followed in 12 Italian cystic fibrosis (CF) centers. Results: 89 subjects carrying at least D1152H on one allele were identified. 7 homozygous patients had very mild clinical expression. Over half of the 74 subjects compound heterozygous for D1152H and a I-II-III class mutation had borderline or pathological sweat test and respiratory or gastrointestinal symptoms; one third had pulmonary bacteria colonization and 10/74 cases had complications (i.e. diabetes, allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis, and hemoptysis). However, their clinical expression was less severe as compared to a group of CF patients homozygous for the F508del mutation. Finally, 8 subjects compound heterozygous for D1152H and a IV-V class mutation showed very mild disease. Conclusions: The natural history of subjects bearing the D1152H mutation is widely heterogeneous and is influenced by the mutation in trans.

Abstract

Background: Discordant results were reported on the clinical expression of subjects bearing the D1152H CFTR mutation, and also for the small number of cases reported so far. Methods: A retrospective review of clinical, genetic and biochemical data was performed from individuals homozygous or compound heterozygous for the D115211 mutation followed in 12 Italian cystic fibrosis (CF) centers. Results: 89 subjects carrying at least D1152H on one allele were identified. 7 homozygous patients had very mild clinical expression. Over half of the 74 subjects compound heterozygous for D1152H and a I-II-III class mutation had borderline or pathological sweat test and respiratory or gastrointestinal symptoms; one third had pulmonary bacteria colonization and 10/74 cases had complications (i.e. diabetes, allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis, and hemoptysis). However, their clinical expression was less severe as compared to a group of CF patients homozygous for the F508del mutation. Finally, 8 subjects compound heterozygous for D1152H and a IV-V class mutation showed very mild disease. Conclusions: The natural history of subjects bearing the D1152H mutation is widely heterogeneous and is influenced by the mutation in trans.
