A review of microRNA studies provides an overview of the evidence available to date which support the pathogenic role of miRNAs in human genetic diseases and describes the results of recent studies indicating the phenotypic consequences of miRNA alterations on the function of several tissues and organs. These studies suggest that the spectrum of genetic diseases possibly caused by mutations in miRNAs is wide and is only starting to be unravelled.
