Seizures, Benign Familial Infantile, 2; Bfis2

Description

Benign familial infantile seizure is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by afebrile partial complex or generalized tonic-clonic seizures occurring between 3 and 12 months of age with a good response to medication and no neurologic sequelae. Seizures usually remit by age 18 months (summary by Weber et al., 2004).For a general phenotypic description and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of benign familial infantile seizures, see BFIS1 (OMIM ).Benign familial infantile seizures can also occur in 2 allelic disorders: infantile convulsions and choreoathetosis (ICCA ) and paroxysmal kinesigenic choreoathetosis (EKD1 ).
