Abstract

We report 3 patients with sever myoclonic epilepsy of infancy (SMEI) and genomic deletions encompassing the SCN1A locus (deletion size: 624 kb-4.7 Mb). Deletions originated de novo from paternal chromosome in all subjects. One patient had central precocious puberty and palatoschisis. Genotype-phenotype correlations suggest that these clinical features are due to genes centromeric to SCN1A.
