Epileptic Encephalopathy, Early Infantile, 16; Eiee16

Description

Early infantile epileptic encephalopathy-16 is a severe autosomal recessive neurologic disorder characterized by onset of seizures in the first weeks or months of life. Seizures can be of various types, are unresponsive to medication, last for long periods of time, and occur frequently. Affected infants show psychomotor regression or lack of psychomotor development, as well as other neurologic features such as extrapyramidal signs and hypotonia. Most die in childhood (summary by Duru et al., 2010 and Milh et al., 2013).For a general phenotypic description and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of EIEE, see EIEE1 (OMIM ).
