Seizures, Benign Familial Neonatal, 2; Bfns2

Description

Benign familial neonatal seizures-2 is an autosomal dominant neurologic condition characterized by onset of clonic or tonic-clonic seizures in the first few days of life. Seizures tend to last for about a minute, may occur several times a day, and are responsive to medication. Almost all patients have full remission within the first months of life, although some rare patients may have a few seizures later in childhood. EEG, brain imaging, and psychomotor development are usually normal (summary by Fister et al., 2013).For a general phenotypic description and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of benign familial neonatal seizures, see BFNS1 (OMIM ).
