What causes Nance-Horan syndrome?

Nance-Horan syndrome is caused by a mutation in the NHS gene, which is located on the X chromosome.[1] Some patients have losses (deletions) of part of the chromosome X short arm (p) within the region involving the NHS gene and other genes that are located in this region. These patients may have more problems and the problems may be more serious.[2]
