BackgroundThe dilated cardiomyopathy with ataxia syndrome is a rare autosomal recessive multisystem disorder caused by mutations in DNAJC19. We present a new patient with a novel pathogenic variant in DNAJC19 with novel neuroimaging finding of progressive cerebellar atrophy.Patient Description and ResultsWe describe a new patient with dilated cardiomyopathy with ataxia syndrome presenting with global developmental delay, hypotonia, ataxia, and dilated cardiomyopathy. During follow-up, her cardiac phenotype improved but she exhibited progressive cerebellar atrophy and developed bilateral increased T2 signal intensities in the thalami, parietal lobes, and pons on magnetic resonance imaging. Dilated cardiomyopathy and 3-methylglutaconic aciduria in her urine organic acid analysis also improved.ConclusionsThis child with dilated cardiomyopathy with ataxia syndrome developed progressive cerebellar atrophy, a novel feature of this syndrome. In individuals with global developmental delay, hypotonia, ataxia, the dilated cardiomyopathy with ataxia syndrome should be considered even in the differential diagnosis in the absence of cardiomyopathy or 3-methylglutaconic aciduria.
