Abstract

We describe two couples of sibs from a southern Italian family affected by epilepsy, myoclonus, mental retardation and slight ataxia. Onset was between 4 and 12 years and the course slowly progressive. The clinical picture suggested the diagnosis of Unverricht-Lundborg disease. Molecular study excluded linkage to EPM1. Other possible causes of progressive myoclonus epilepsy were also excluded.
