Fragile X syndrome is a common cause of intellectual disability. It is usually caused by a de novo mutation which often occur on multiple haplotypes and should not be detectible using genome-wide association (GWA). We conducted GWA 89 male FXS cases and 266 male controls, and detected multiple genome-wide significant signals near FMR1 (odds ratio=8.10, P=2.5x10-10). These findings withstood robust attempts at falsification. Fine-mapping did not serve to narrow the interval (minimum P=1.13x10-14), and functional genomic integration (including 5C data we generated for this region) did not provide a mechanistic hypothesis. Controls carrying a risk haplotype had significantly longer and more variable FMR1 CGG repeats than controls with the protective haplotype (P=4.75x10-5) which may predispose toward increases in CGG number to the pre-mutation range over many generations. This is a salutary reminder of the complexity of even “simple” monogenetic disorders.
