Prevalence

SLC6A1 is a recently discovered pathogenic mutation and is only on 13% of panel testing, so the condition is very under-diagnosed.Dennis Lal’s genomics lab predict (unpublished, in review) 2.6 (CI:2.3-2.8) new SLC6A1 patients in 100,000 births, which translates to an incidence of about 1 in 38,000 births.  In addition:
