We report the identification of a new frameshift mutation (936delTA) in exon 6b of the CFTR gene. In the screening of 486 unrelated Spanish CF patients we found a patient homozygous for 936delTA (with consanguineous parents) and a patient heterozygous for ΔF508 and 936delTA. Genotype-phenotype correlation studies showed that 936delTA is associated with pancreatic insufficiency and chronic pulmonary colonisation.
