Low match ALTERNATING HEMIPLEGIA OF CHILDHOOD 2; AHC2


Alternating hemiplegia of childhood is a rare syndrome characterized by infantile onset of episodic hemi-or quadriplegia. Most cases are accompanied by dystonic posturing, choreoathetoid movements, abnormal ocular movements, developmental delay, and progressive cognitive impairment (summary by Heinzen et al., 2012).For discussion of genetic heterogeneity of alternating hemiplegia of childhood, see AHC1 (OMIM ).

Related symptoms:

  • Intellectual disability

Related symptoms:

  • Seizures

Dystonia-9 is an autosomal dominant neurologic disorder characterized by childhood onset of paroxysmal choreoathetosis and progressive spastic paraplegia. Most show some degree of cognitive impairment. Other variable features may include seizures, migraine headaches, and ataxia (summary by Weber et al., 2011).

Low match TREMOR, HEREDITARY ESSENTIAL, 1; ETM1


Essential tremor may be the most common human movement disorder. The main feature of essential tremor is postural tremor of the arms, but the head, legs, trunk, voice, jaw, and facial muscles also may be involved. Aggravated by emotions, hunger, fatigue, and temperature extremes, the condition may cause a functional disability or even incapacitation. Autosomal dominant inheritance can be demonstrated in most families (summary by Higgins et al., 1997).Deng et al. (2007) provided a detailed review of the genetics of essential tremor. Genetic Heterogeneity of Essential TremorOther forms of hereditary essential tremor include ETM2 (OMIM ), mapped to chromosome 2p25-p22; ETM3 (OMIM ), mapped to chromosome 6p23; ETM4 (OMIM ), caused by mutation in the FUS gene (OMIM ) on chromosome 16p11; and ETM5 (OMIM ), caused by mutation in the TENM4 gene (OMIM ) on chromosome 11q14.

TREMOR, HEREDITARY ESSENTIAL, 1; ETM1 Is also known as fet1|tremor, familial essential, 1

Related symptoms:

  • Hearing impairment
  • Ataxia
  • Cognitive impairment
  • Dysarthria
  • Fever

Low match PERIODIC FEVER, MENSTRUAL CYCLE-DEPENDENT


Women show menstrual cycle-dependent physiologic changes in relation to sex hormone levels. Because ovulation triggers a significant change in the hormonal milieu that is similar to local inflammation, a 0.5 to 1.0 degree Celsius increase in basal body temperature after ovulation is commonly associated with progesterone secretion and is believed to be triggered by the induction of several inflammatory cytokines. Rare menstrual cycle-dependent febrile episodes have been reported, some of which have shown a luteal-phase-dependent pattern (summary by Jiang et al., 2012).

Related symptoms:

  • Ataxia
  • Fever
  • Tremor
  • Myalgia
  • Lower limb muscle weakness

Episodic ataxia type 2 (EA2) is the most frequent form of Hereditary episodic ataxia (EA; see this term) characterized by paroxysmal episodes of ataxia lasting hours, with interictal nystagmus and mildly progressive ataxia.

FAMILIAL PAROXYSMAL ATAXIA Is also known as episodic ataxia type 2
