Background: Deletions in the long arm of chromosome 1 have been described in patients with a phenotype consisting primarily of obesity, intellectual disability and autism-spectrum disorder. The minimal region of overlap comprises two genes: DPYD and MIR137. Case presentation: We describe a 10-year-old boy with syndromic obesity who carries a novel 1p21.3 deletion overlapping the critical region with the MIR137 gene only. Conclusions: This study suggests that MIR137 is the mediator of the obesity phenotype of patients carrying 1p21.3 microdeletions.
