Mutations in the epsilon-sarcoglycan gene (SGCE) are associated with familial myoclonus dystonia, but the full spectrum of the phenotype may not be fully defined. We screened 58 individuals with a range of myoclonic/dystonic syndromes for SGCE mutations. We found mutations (four of them novel) in six (21%) of the 29 patients with essential myoclonus and myoclonic dystonia, but did not find mutations in the 29 patients with other phenotypes.
