We included patients, the majority females In the EEG, to Nuvenil multispikes are associated with myoclonic and tonic-clonic convulsions beginning at 8 to 20 years of age.


The proband had childhood absence epilepsy see, e. This is characterized by ataxia and lethargic behaviour at early stages of development followed within days by the onset of both focal motor seizures as well as episodes of behavioural immobility which correlates with patterns of cortical spike and wave discharges at the EEG [8] A premature-termination mutation RX was identified in a patient with JME while an additional missense mutation CF was identified in a German family with generalized epilepsy and praxis — induced seizures.

Significant lod scores were obtained in the region, and haplotype and recombination analysis refined the JME locus to a 3.

In affected members of 6 unrelated families with juvenile myoclonic epilepsy, Suzuki et al.

There is also a higher rate of females showing JME symptoms than males. The family they studied exhibited clear autosomal dominant transmission.

Our aim is to analyse those phenotypes in patients over 16 years of age. Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy is an inherited genetic syndrome, but the way in which this disorder is inherited is unclear.
