Monosomy 1p36 is one of the most common subtelomeric microdeletion syndrome with an estimated incidence of 1:5,000 to 1:10,000 newborns. Epilepsy is reported in about 50-70% of cases, with onset of seizures in the first year of life. We report two patients with subtle deletion within 1p36 confirmed by FISH analysis, who referred to our observation for seizures in the first months of life.
