Summaries for Childhood Absence Epilepsy

About this section
Disease Ontology:8 A childhood electroclinical syndrome that is characterized by brief and frequent absence seizures in children with age of onset between four and ten years.

MalaCards based summary: Childhood Absence Epilepsy, also known as pyknolepsy, is related to febrile seizures and frontal lobe epilepsy. An important gene associated with Childhood Absence Epilepsy is CACNA1H (calcium channel, voltage-dependent, T type, alpha 1H subunit), and among its related pathways are Benzodiazepine Pathway, Pharmacodynamics and Calcium channels. The drugs clonazepam and sodium valproate and the compounds progabide and [11c]flumazenil have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include brain, testes and amygdala, and related mouse phenotypes are no phenotypic analysis and reproductive system.
