Epilepsy, Nocturnal Frontal Lobe, 4; Enfl4

Description

Nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy is a childhood-onset focal epilepsy that displays clusters of sleep-related hypermotor seizures (summary by Aridon et al., 2006). Some patients with CHRNA2 mutations may have a slightly different phenotype that is more consistent with a clinical diagnosis of benign familial infantile seizures (BFIS6) (Trivisano et al., 2015).For a general phenotypic description and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy, see ENFL1 (OMIM ).For a general phenotypic description and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of benign familial infantile seizures, see BFIS1 (OMIM ).
