Seizures, Benign Familial Infantile, 5; Bfis5

Description

Benign familial infantile seizures-5 (BFIS5) is an autosomal dominant neurologic disorder characterized by onset of afebrile seizures during infancy. In most cases, the seizures remit by age 2 years, although some patients may have single or a few seizures later in childhood. The seizures respond well to treatment with sodium channel blockers, and patients have normal subsequent psychomotor development. Some patients may develop paroxysmal kinesigenic dyskinesia around puberty (summary by Gardella et al., 2016 and Anand et al., 2016).For a general phenotypic description and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of benign familial infantile seizures, see BFIS1 (OMIM ).
