Key Words Melanocortin receptor 4; Obesity; Sleep disorders; Epilepsy; Melatonin; Case report
Core Tip Numerous reports suggested that abnormalities of the MC4R (melanocortin receptor 4) gene may cause obesity, but are rarely associated with other conditions. The case presented in our manuscript involved a male obese child with a heterozygous variant in MC4R (c.494G>A, p.Arg165Gln) inherited from his father, who presented with epilepsy, sleep disordered and his melatonin rhythm was markedly distorted. This is the first report of the combination of these symptoms in a patient with an MC4R variant. Antiepileptic drug was ineffective and the sleep disorder appeared to be deteriorating. The use of melatonin relieved all his symptoms, and even the electroencephalography review was normal, and a typical melatonin rhythm was restored. We hope that our experience can help for the early diagnosis and treatment of this condition.
