The established marked phenotypic variability among individuals carrying the same mutation tends to blur distinctions among different mutations,  and it is likely that epigenetic and environmental factors also play an important role. The most robust genotype-phenotype correlation is for point mutations or small in-frame deletions in the epidermal growth factor–like motifs in the middle region of the gene (exons 24–32), which tend to result in a more severe form of the disorder and explain virtually all cases of neonatal MFS .
