There are no records of whether Henry displayed other physical signs of McLeod syndrome but the dramatic changes in his personality provide stronger evidence that Henry had McLeod syndrome, the authors point out: His mental and emotional instability increased in the dozen years before death to an extent that some have labelled his behaviour psychotic.
Several known genes are in the X-chromosome region between the DMD and OTC genes, including: (a) CYBB [cytochrome b-245, beta polypeptide (chronic granulomatous disease)], which encodes the cytochrome b (3 chain involved in superoxide production and mutations of which cause chronic granulomatous disease; (b) XK [X-linked Kx blood group (McLeod syndrome)], which is the X-linked Kx blood group of the kell precursor and mutations of which have been associated with McLeod syndrome, an X-linked, recessive disorder characterized by abnormalities in the neuromuscular and hematopoietic systems; and (c) RPGR (retinitis pigmentosa GTPase regulator), the X-linked retinitis pigmentosa GTPase regulator isoform B.
