Additional features include altered blood coagulation with a high probability of hemorrhages or thromboses, nephrotic syndrome, ascites, hepatomegaly, cardiomyopathy, ocular manifestations (strabismus, nystagmus), and immunodeficiency. The disease is caused by loss-of-function mutations in the gene ALG1 (16p13.3).
