    We describe a patient with hemiconvulsion-hemiplegia-epilepsy syndrome. The pathophysiology of hemiconvulsion-hemiplegia-epilepsy syndrome remains uncertain and there are probably multiple potential contributing factors. Our patient had a chromosomal 16p13.11 microdeletion that confers...

    Background We undertook genetic analysis of three affected families to identify the cause of dominantlyinherited CAPOS (cerebellar ataxia, areflexia, pes cavus, optic atrophy and sensorineural hearing loss) syndrome. Methods We used whole-exome sequencing to analyze two families affected with...

    Facilitated glucose transporter protein type 1 (GLUT1) deficiency syndrome (MIM 138140) defines a prototype of a novel group of disorders resulting from impaired glucose transport across blood-tissue barriers. It is caused by a defect in glucose transport into brain, mediated by the facilitative...

    The clinical spectrum associated with ATP1A2 mutations is expanding and includes familial hemiplegic migraine, alternating hemiplegia of childhood, and epilepsy. We have identified a novel c.1766T>C. (Ile589Thr) heterozygous mutation in the ATP1A2 gene in a Saudi kindred with hemiplegic attacks...

  • Alternative Approaches to Modeling Hereditary Dystonias. Fremont, Rachel; Khodakhah, Kamran // Neurotherapeutics;Apr2012, Vol. 9 Issue 2, p315 

    Dystonia is a movement disorder characterized by involuntary muscle contractions resulting in abnormal postures. Although common in the clinic, the etiology of dystonia remains unclear. Most dystonias are idiopathic and are not associated with clear pathological brain abnormalities. Attempts to...

    Mutations in the mitochondrial DNA polymerase gamma (POLG) cause a highly pleomorphic disease spectrum, and reports about their frequencies in ataxia populations yield equivocal results. This leads to uncertainties about the role of POLG genetics in the workup of patients with unexplained...
