Abstract

Non-dystrophic myotonias are characterized by clinical overlap making it challenging to establish genotype-phenotype correlations. We report clinical and electrophysiological findings in a girl and her father concomitantly harbouring single heterozygous mutations in SCN4A and CLCN1 genes. Functional characterization of N1297S hNav1.4 mutant was performed by patch clamp. The patients displayed a mild phenotype, mostly resembling a sodium channel myotonia. The CLCN1 c.501C>G (p.F167L) mutation has been already described in recessive pedigrees, whereas the SCN4A c.3890A>G (p.N1297S) variation is novel. Patch clamp experiments showed impairment of fast and slow inactivation of the mutated Nav1.4 sodium channel. The present findings suggest that analysis of both SCN4A and CLCN1 genes should be considered in myotonic patients with atypical clinical and neurophysiological features.
