An international group recommends that papers relating phenotypes to genotypes involving mutations in the X chromosome gene MECP2 should provide a minimum data set reporting the range of disturbances frequently encountered in Rett Syndrome. A simple scoring system is suggested which will facilitate comparison among the various clinical profiles. Features are described which should prompt screening for MECP2 mutations.
