A number sign (#) is used with this entry because of evidence that episodic ataxia type 2 (EA2) is caused by heterozygous mutation in the calcium ion channel.

An older sister had died at age aataxia with a similar phenotype. The patient usually feels normal by the next morning. Attacks recurred after treatment was stopped, and subsequent treatment alleviated the symptoms.

Treatment of episodic ataxia type 2 with the potassium channel blocker 4-aminopyridine. Only comments seeking to improve the quality and accuracy of information on the Orphanet website are accepted.

Collected Papers of the Mayo Clinic. Episodic ataxia, type 5. In 3 additional patients with similar attacks, but without atacia family history, normal pH values were found in both cerebellum and cerebrum. Genetic counseling is the process of providing individuals and families with information on the nature, inheritance, and implications of genetic disorders to help them make informed medical and personal decisions.

Additional information Further information on this disease Classification s 5 Gene s 1 Clinical signs and symptoms Other website s 1. Recipients of the drug also had decreased disease burden, as measured by a questionnaire.

Please review our privacy policy. This disorder may have first been recognized by Parker Brain imaging showed several abnormalities, including a small corpus callosum, dilated ventricles, and diffuse hypomyelination; he also had optic atrophy.

Mutation in the glutamate transporter EAAT1 causes episodic ataxia, hemiplegia, and seizures. CC HPO: Diagnosis There are no formal clinical diagnostic criteria for the diagnosis of episodic ataxia type 2.


Note on variant classification: Prevalence EA2 is rare. Intronic variants that presumably disrupt the reading frame through abnormal splicing exon skipping or intron inclusion of the gene product have also been reported [ Eunson et alWan et al ].

Hyperammonemias caused by deficiencies of urea cycle enzymes include carbamoylphosphate synthetase deficiency OMIMargininosuccinate synthetase deficiency citrullinemia type 1argininosuccinase deficiencyand arginase deficiency.

In fact, juvenile myoclonic epilepsy and EA5 are allelic and produce proteins with similar dysfunction. In EA1, attacks last minutes and interictal myokymia may be present. Nomenclature EA2 has also been known as periodic vestibulocerebellar ataxia and acetazolamide-responsive episodic ataxia. Can J Neurol Sci. Family history consistent with autosomal dominant episodjca. The Journal of Heredity. The rearrangements are likely episodca be pathogenic given their segregation with the disease in large families with EA2.

Therapies Under Investigation Scoggan et al [] reported an individual who responded to a combination of acetazolamide and ataxi acid. Neuroimaging of the episodida if not performed alreadypreferably MRI, to evaluate for structural lesions and to look for evidence of atrophy.

He was blind and bedridden with developmental delay, marked muscular atrophy, and rigidity. Aminoacidurias, including Hartnup disease, intermittent branched-chain ketoaciduria, and isovaleric acidemia, can be diagnosed by identification of increased levels of certain amino acids in plasma and increased excretion of amino acids in the urine.

OMIM is intended for use primarily by physicians and other professionals concerned with genetic disorders, by genetics researchers, and by advanced students in science and medicine. Only comments written in English can be processed.

Episodic ataxia-vertigo-tinnitus-myokymia syndrome Prevalence: Episodic ataxia with episidica Prevalence: Attacks lasted between one-half hour and 6 hours. A variant of this condition may be effectively treated with thiamine.

These attacks were precipitated by fever. As described in Table 1, most of the known EA1 associated mutations result in a drastic decrease in the amount of current through K V 1. This medication is generally well tolerated; the most common side effects are paresthesias of the extremities, rash, and renal calculi.


The phenotype was characterized by onset before age 20 years, attacks lasting hours to days, and associated weakness and dysarthria. For clarity, excerpts of GeneReviews chapters for use in lab aaxia and clinic notes are a permitted use.

Prenatal Testing and Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis Once the CACNA1A eipsodica variant has been identified in an affected family member, prenatal testing for a pregnancy at increased risk eoisodica preimplantation genetic diagnosis for EA2 are possible. See Urea Cycle Disorders Overview.

Coding and noncoding variation of the human calcium-channel beta4-subunit gene CACNB4 in patients with idiopathic generalized epilepsy and episodic ataxia. For questions regarding permissions or whether a specified use is allowed, contact: If the pathogenic variant epispdica in the proband cannot be detected in leukocyte DNA of either parent, two possible explanations are a de novo pathogenic variant in the proband or germline mosaicism epiodica a parent Although no instances of germline mosaicism have been reported, it remains a possibility.

This is episldica due to decreased synthesis or protein stability. Spinocerebellar ataxia type 6. The documents contained in this web site are presented for information purposes only.

Onset as late as age 61 years has been reported [ Imbrici et al ]. A new episodic ataxia syndrome with linkage to chromosome 19q PheCysand c. The phenotype was characterized by recurrent episodes of vertigo and ataxia that lasted for several hours. Episodic ataxia, type 4.
