The widespread application of modern sequencing technologies has revealed an ever-growing number of novel gene-disease associations and genotype-phenotype correlations. Sometimes, two different genetic abnormalities may occur in a single person and considerably confound the phenotype. Herein, we report on a patient with a known gonosomal numeric aberration, who was also found to carry a pathogenic point mutation in a new candidate dystonia-associated gene, SATB1.
