Disease characteristics

Excerpted from the GeneReview: Congenital Mirror Movements
The disorder of congenital mirror movements (CMM) is characterized by early-onset, obvious mirror movements (involuntary movements of one side of the body that mirror intentional movements on the opposite side) in individuals who typically have no other clinical signs or symptoms. Although mirror movements vary in severity, most affected individuals have strong and sustained mirror movements of a lesser amplitude than the corresponding voluntary movements. Mirror movements usually persist throughout life, without deterioration or improvement, and are not usually associated with subsequent onset of additional neurologic manifestations. However, a subset of affected individuals with a heterozygous pathogenic variant in DCC may have CMM with abnormalities of the corpus callosum and concomitant cognitive and/or neuropsychiatric issues. [from GeneReviews]

Additional description

From OMIM
Mirror movements are contralateral involuntary movements that mirror voluntary ones. Whereas mirror movements are occasionally found in normal young children, persistence beyond the age of 10 years is abnormal. Congenital mirror movements tend to persist throughout adulthood and tend to occur more commonly in the upper extremities (summary by Sharafaddinzadeh et al., 2008 and Srour et al., 2010). Some patients with DCC mutations have agenesis of the corpus callosum (Marsh et al., 2017). Genetic Heterogeneity of Mirror Movements See also MRMV2 (614508), caused by mutation in the RAD51 gene (179617) on chromosome 15q15; MRMV3 (606059), caused by mutation in the DNAL4 gene (610565) on chromosome 22q13; and MRMV4 (618264), caused by mutation in the NTN1 gene (601614) on chromosome 17p13.  http://www.omim.org/entry/157600

Congenital Abnormality
The corpus callosum is the largest fiber tract in the central nervous system and the major interhemispheric fiber bundle in the brain. Formation of the corpus callosum begins as early as 6 weeks' gestation, with the first fibers crossing the midline at 11 to 12 weeks' gestation, and completion of the basic shape by age 18 to 20 weeks (Schell-Apacik et al., 2008). Agenesis of the corpus callosum (ACC) is one of the most frequent malformations in brain with a reported incidence ranging between 0.5 and 70 in 10,000 births. ACC is a clinically and genetically heterogeneous condition, which can be observed either as an isolated condition or as a manifestation in the context of a congenital syndrome (see MOLECULAR GENETICS and Dobyns, 1996). Also see mirror movements-1 and/or agenesis of the corpus callosum (MRMV1; 157600). Schell-Apacik et al. (2008) noted that there is confusion in the literature regarding radiologic terminology concerning partial absence of the corpus callosum, where various designations have been used, including hypogenesis, hypoplasia, partial agenesis, or dysgenesis.
