Abstract

We report a 55-year-old woman with focal cryptogenic epilepsy and spinal muscular atrophy (SMA). Genetic analysis showed a heterozygous deletion of exons 7 and 8 of the SMN1 gene. The association of epilepsy and SMA as been rarely reported in literature. The pathophysiological mechanisms that may share these two neurological conditions remain unknown.
