Background: LAMA1 gene is mutated in patients with Poretti-Boltshauser syndrome, which include mainly the characteristic neuroimaging findings of cerebellar dysplasia and cysts.
Case Presentation: We present a novel homozygous LAMA1 variant that is predicted to cause atypical phenotype of severe arthrogryposis, feeding difficulties, developmental delay, retinopathy, and no cerebellar involvement.
Conclusion: Our findings are suggestive of absence of cerebellar involvement in LAMA1 mutations in some cases and phenotype may include severe arthrogryposis.

Key words: Case report, LAMA1 gene, arthrogryposis, cerebellum
