Atypical course in individuals from Spanish families with benign familial infantile seizures and mutations in the PRRT2 gene.

A benign prognosis has been claimed in benign familial infantile seizures (BFIS). However, few studies have assessed the long-term evolution of these ...

Phenotypes and PRRT2 mutations in Chinese families with benign familial infantile epilepsy and infantile convulsions with paroxysmal choreoathetosis.
Mutations in the PRRT2 gene have been identified as the major cause of benign familial infantile epilepsy (BFIE), paroxysmal kinesigenic dyskinesia (PKD) and infantile convulsions with paroxysmal choreoathetosis/dyskinesias (ICCA). Here, we analyzed

Infantile Pain Episodes Associated with Novel Nav1.9 Mutations in Familial Episodic Pain Syndrome in Japanese Families.
Painful peripheral neuropathy has been correlated with various voltage-gated sodium channel mutations in sensory neurons. Recently Nav1.9, a voltage-gated sodium channel subtype, has been established as a genetic influence for certain peripheral pain

The Prevalence of Founder Mutations among Individuals from Families with Familial Pancreatic Cancer Syndrome.
Familial pancreatic cancer describes families with at least two first-degree relatives with pancreatic cancer that do not fulfil the criteria of other inherited tumor syndromes with increased risks of pancreatic cancer. Although much has been learned

PRRT2 mutations are related to febrile seizures in epileptic patients.
Previous studies reported that the proline-rich transmembrane protein 2 (PRRT2) gene was identified to be related to paroxysmal kinesigenic dyskinesia (PKD), infantile convulsions with PKD, PKD with migraine and benign familial infantile epilepsy (BF

Two Novel KCNQ2 Mutations in 2 Families With Benign Familial Neonatal Convulsions.
Benign familial neonatal convulsion is a rare autosomal dominant inherited epilepsy syndrome characterized by unprovoked seizures in the first few days of life, normal psychomotor development, and a positive intergenerational family history of neonat

New mutations in the RAB28 gene in 2 Spanish families with cone-rod dystrophy.
The families evaluated in this study represent the second report of cone-rod dystrophy (CRD) cases caused by mutations in RAB28, a recently discovered gene associated with CRD.

Homozygous mutations in the SCN1A gene associated with genetic epilepsy with febrile seizures plus and Dravet syndrome in 2 families.
Mutations in the gene encoding the alpha subunit of the voltage-gated sodium channel SCN1A are associated with several epilepsy syndromes. These range from severe phenotypes including Dravet syndrome to milder phenotypes such as genetic epilepsy with

Severe phenotypic spectrum of biallelic mutations in PRRT2 gene.
Heterozygous dominant mutations of PRRT2 have been associated with various types of paroxysmal neurological manifestations, including benign familial infantile convulsions and paroxysmal kinesigenic dyskinesia. The phenotype associated with biallelic

Novel GABRG2 mutations cause familial febrile seizures.
To identify the genetic cause in a large family with febrile seizures (FS) and temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) and subsequently search for additional mutations in a cohort of 107 families with FS, with or without epilepsy.

Benign occipital lobe seizures: Natural progression and atypical evolution.
Benign occipital seizure syndromes are benign childhood epilepsy syndromes and are mainly of two types, Panayiotopoulos syndrome, an autonomic epilepsy and idiopathic childhood occipital epilepsy of Gastaut (ICOE-G) including the idiopathic photosens
