The phenotype associated with biallelic mutations is not well understood...

    Episodic ataxia type 2 (EA-2) is a rare disorder presenting with paroxysmal vertigo and cerebellar dysfunction. EA-2 is known to be caused by mutations of the CACNA1A gene on chromosome 19q13. We examined a family of EA-2 with a novel mutation of the CACNA1A gene showing characteristic ocular...

    The episodic ataxias are an exemplar of ion channelopathies, encompassing many of the common features that typify this rapidly expanding group of disorders. Two distinct forms, EA1 and EA2 are caused by mutations in the neuronal potassium (KCNA1) and calcium (CACNA1A) channel genes respectively....

    Paroxysmal dyskinesia can be subdivided into three clinical syndromes: paroxysmal kinesigenic dyskinesia or choreoathetosis, paroxysmal exercise-induced dyskinesia, and paroxysmal non-kinesigenic dyskinesia. Each subtype is associated with the known causative genes PRRT2, SLC2A1 and PNKD,...

    Ataxia is a symptom of cerebellar dysfunction. Slowly progressive ataxia, dysarthria in an adult with a positive family history suggests an inherited cerebellar ataxia. We present an adult with gradually progressive ataxia and slow saccades. There was history of similar illness in his son....
