Infantile epileptic encephalopathy, transient choreoathetotic movements, and hypersomnia due to a De Novo missense mutation in the SCN2A gene - Zurich Open Repository and Archive


Hackenberg, Annette; Baumer, Alessandra; Sticht, Heinrich; Schmitt, Bernhard; Kroell-Seger, Judith; Wille, David; Joset, Pascal; Papuc, Sorina; Rauch, Anita; Plecko, Barbara (2014). Infantile epileptic encephalopathy, transient choreoathetotic movements, and hypersomnia due to a De Novo missense mutation in the SCN2A gene. Neuropediatrics, 45(4):261-264.

Abstract

Mutations of the SCN2A gene have originally been described in association with benign familial neonatal-infantile seizures (BFNIS). Recently, single patients with more severe phenotypes and persisting epileptic encephalopathies have been recognized. We report the case of a girl with severe infantile onset epileptic encephalopathy and a de novo missense mutation in the SCN2A gene (c.4025T > C/ = ; p.L1342P/ = ), who presented with a transient choreatic movement disorder, hypersomnia, and progressive brain atrophy. Whole exome sequencing did not reveal any other disease causing mutation. Our patient contributes to the expanding phenotypic spectrum of SCN2A-related disorders and underlines the importance of genetic workup in epileptic encephalopathies.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
