Pricing Comments

Our favored testing approach is exome based NextGen sequencing with CNV analysis. This will allow cost effective reflexing to PGxome or other exome based tests. However, if full gene Sanger sequencing is desired for STAT turnaround time, insurance, or other reasons, please see link below for Test Code, pricing, and turnaround time information. If the Sanger option is selected, CNV detection may be ordered through Test #600.

An additional 25% charge will be applied to STAT orders. STAT orders are prioritized throughout the testing process.

The Sanger Sequencing method for this test is NY State approved.

Turnaround Time

3 weeks on average for standard orders or 2 weeks on average for STAT orders.

Please note: Once the testing process begins, an Estimated Report Date (ERD) range will be displayed in the portal. This is the most accurate prediction of when your report will be complete and may differ from the average TAT published on our website. About 85% of our tests will be reported within or before the ERD range. We will notify you of significant delays or holds which will impact the ERD. Learn more about turnaround times here.

Clinical Features and Genetics

Clinical Features

Majeed Syndrome (MS) is diagnosed based on a triad of clinical findings including chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis (CRMO), dyserythropoietic anemia, and inflammatory dermatosis. CRMO onset occurs before two years of age with 1-3 bouts per month lasting a few days. High fever, severe pain, and periarticular tender soft tissue swelling involving large joints are common symptoms during CRMO. Other symptoms may also include neutropenia, hepatomegaly, transient cholestatic jaundice, growth retardation, chronic anemia, and development of permanent flexion contractures. Genetic testing is helpful in confirming diagnosis of MS and for differential diagnosis from other hereditary periodic fevers, congenital dyserythropoietic anemia and sporadic forms of CRMO (Caso et al. 2013). MS is a very rare disorder affecting less than 1 per million individuals (El-Shanti and Ferguson 2013).


MS is a fully penetrant disorder that is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner through mutations in the LPIN2 gene. To date, only four families have been reported to have MS with nonsense and small deletion mutations leading to frame shift and premature protein termination being most prevalent. In one case, a missense mutation was identified to cause MS (El-Shanti and Ferguson 2013; Ferguson et al. 2005). No gross deletions have been reported to date (Touitou et al. 2004). Lipin-2  is a member of the lipin enzyme family and facilitates biosynthesis of lipids. Lipin-2 serves as a protective role in regulating inflammation as deletion of the gene leads to enhanced expression of pro-inflammatory cytokines including IL-6, CCL2, and TNF alpha (Valdearcos et al. 2012).

Clinical Sensitivity - Sequencing with CNV PGxome

Analytical sensitivity should be high because all mutations reported are detectable by sequencing. Clinical sensitivity cannot be estimated because only a small number of cases have been reported.

No gross deletions have been reported in literature.

Testing Strategy

This test provides full coverage of all coding exons of the LPIN2 gene plus 10 bases of flanking noncoding DNA in all available transcripts along with other non-coding regions in which pathogenic variants have been identified at PreventionGenetics or reported elsewhere. We define full coverage as >20X NGS reads or Sanger sequencing. PGnome panels typically provide slightly increased coverage over the PGxome equivalent. PGnome sequencing panels have the added benefit of additional analysis and reporting of deep intronic regions (where applicable).

Dependent on the sequencing backbone selected for this testing, discounted reflex testing to any other similar backbone-based test is available (i.e., PGxome panel to whole PGxome; PGnome panel to whole PGnome).

Indications for Test

Individuals with clinical features consistent with Majeed Syndrome and laboratory findings showing elevated C-reactive protein and erythrocyte sedimentation rates are ideal candidates for testing (El-Shanti and Ferguson 2013). This test may also be considered for the reproductive partners of individuals who carry pathogenic variants in LPIN2.
