Mutations in caveolin-3 (CAV3) can lead to different clinical phenotypes affecting skeletal or cardiac muscles. Here, we describe a patient with Klinefelter syndrome, ulcerative colitis and Sjögren syndrome, who developed transient hyperCKemia, myalgia and mild muscular weakness. Using whole exome sequencing (WES), a missense mutation G169A was found in the CAV3 gene. In addition, we identified a homozygous frameshift deletion in MS4A12 that may contribute to inflammatory bowel disease, further demonstrating usefulness of WES in dual molecular diagnoses.
