    Introduction: Neurodevelopmental disorders with language impairment and behavioral abnormalities (NEDLIB) are a disease caused by heterozygous variants in the glutamate ionotropic receptor AMPA type subunit 2 (GRIA2) gene, which manifest as impaired mental development or developmental delay, behavioral abnormalities including autistic characteristics, and language disorders. Currently, only a few mutations in the GRIA2 gene have been discovered. Methods: A GRIA2 variation was detected in a patient by whole-exome sequencing, and the site was validated by Sanger sequencing from the family. Results: We report a Chinese case of NEDLIB in a girl with language impairment and developmental delay through whole-exome sequencing (WES). Genetic analysis showed that there was a de novo missense mutation, c.1934T > G (p.Leu645Arg), in the GRIA2 gene (NM_001083619.1), which has never been reported before. Conclusion: Our case shows the potential diagnostic role of WES in NEDLIB, expands the GRIA2 gene mutation spectrum, and further deepens the understanding of NEDLIB. Deepening the study of the genetic and clinical heterogeneity, treatment, and prognosis of the disease is still our future challenge and focus.
