AUTOSOMAL DOMINANT NOCTURNAL FRONTAL LOBE EPILEPSY


Alternate names

AUTOSOMAL DOMINANT NOCTURNAL FRONTAL LOBE EPILEPSY Is also known as adnfle

Description

Autosomal dominant nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy (ADNFLE) is a seizure disorder characterized by intermittent dystonia and/or choreoathetoid movements that occur during sleep. The clusters of nocturnal motor seizures are often stereotyped and brief.

Most common symptoms of AUTOSOMAL DOMINANT NOCTURNAL FRONTAL LOBE EPILEPSY

  • Intellectual disability
  • Seizures
  • Behavioral abnormality
  • Dystonia
  • Focal-onset seizure

EPILEPSY, NOCTURNAL FRONTAL LOBE, 4; ENFL4


Alternate names

EPILEPSY, NOCTURNAL FRONTAL LOBE, 4; ENFL4 Is also known as epilepsy, familial, with nocturnal wandering and ictal fear

Description

Nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy is a childhood-onset focal epilepsy that displays clusters of sleep-related hypermotor seizures (summary by Aridon et al., 2006). Some patients with CHRNA2 mutations may have a slightly different phenotype that is more consistent with a clinical diagnosis of benign familial infantile seizures (BFIS6) (Trivisano et al., 2015).For a general phenotypic description and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy, see ENFL1 (OMIM ).For a general phenotypic description and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of benign familial infantile seizures, see BFIS1 (OMIM ).

Most common symptoms of EPILEPSY, NOCTURNAL FRONTAL LOBE, 4; ENFL4

  • Seizures
  • Generalized hypotonia
  • Behavioral abnormality
  • Dystonia
  • Myoclonus
