Abstract

We report two cases of myoclonus epilepsy, beginning at 10-11 years of age and clinically displaying preservation of mental function, along with mild cerebellar signs. In both cases myoclonias occurred at rest but were accentuated by intentional movements. On the basis of the EEG and polygraphic findings as well as clinical evolution, we discuss the nosological problems of these two cases; the existence of intermediate forms or new syndromes among the heterogeneous group of 'degenerative' myoclonus epilepsies is suggested.
