Copy number variants and epilepsy

New emerging syndromes

Abstract

In the last 10 years, advances in the genetic techniques including oligonucleotide array and the following large scale studies have yielded to the identification of recurrent copy number variants (CNVs) associated with epilepsy. Among these a small number has been increasingly reported in association with a distinct epileptic phenotype, delineating emerging epileptic syndromes. To date, none of these CNVs underlying a specific epileptic condition has been included in the ILAE Classification of the Epileptic Syndromes as a distinct form. However once the features and prognosis of these conditions have been completely delineated a proposal for new epileptic syndromes should be considered.
