We reported a pediatric proband exhibiting muscle weakness in the trunk and limbs with skeletal malformation and intellectual disability and performed whole-exome sequencing (WES) of the proband parent-offspring trio. Results revealed a new compound heterozygous mutation in AGRN: c.125A>C (p.Glu42Ala) in the N-terminal agrin domain (NtA) and c.4516G>A (p.Ala1506Thr) in the laminin G1 domain (LG1). Bioinformatic analysis predicted the mutation as possibly pathogenic.
