Gabriele-de Vries Syndrome (GADEVS) is a rare neurodevelopmental disorder caused by mutations in the YY1 gene, characterized by developmental delays, neurological issues, and various congenital anomalies. We report a case of a 16-month-old boy with GADEVS who exhibited poor sucking in infancy, delayed developmental milestones, central hypotonia, ataxic gait, and speech delay. MRI findings included mild dilation of the lateral ventricles and increased signal intensity in the white matter. Whole exome sequencing identified a heterozygous truncating mutation in the YY1 gene, confirming the diagnosis. This case highlights the importance of genetic testing for accurate diagnosis and underscores the need for a multidisciplinary approach to management, as well as further research to improve understanding and treatment of GADEVS.
