Epileptic Encephalopathy, Early Infantile, 48; Eiee48

Description

Early infantile epileptic encephalopathy-48 is a severe autosomal recessive neurologic disorder characterized by global developmental delay with intellectual disability and absent speech, poor, if any, motor development, and onset of seizures in the first year of life. Affected individuals have poor eye contact and may develop microcephaly and abnormal movements (summary by Assoum et al., 2016).For a general phenotypic description and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of EIEE, see EIEE1 (OMIM ).
