Summaries for Epilepsy, Nocturnal Frontal Lobe, 4

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot : 73 Epilepsy, nocturnal frontal lobe, 4: An autosomal dominant focal epilepsy characterized by nocturnal seizures associated with fear sensation, tongue movements, and nocturnal wandering, closely resembling nightmares and sleep walking.
Seizures, benign familial infantile, 6: A form of benign familial infantile epilepsy, a neurologic disorder characterized by afebrile seizures occurring in clusters during the first year of life, without neurologic sequelae. BFIS6 inheritance is autosomal dominant.

MalaCards based summary : Epilepsy, Nocturnal Frontal Lobe, 4, also known as epilepsy, nocturnal frontal lobe, type 4, is related to autosomal dominant nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy and epilepsy, and has symptoms including has tingling sensation An important gene associated with Epilepsy, Nocturnal Frontal Lobe, 4 is CHRNA2 (Cholinergic Receptor Nicotinic Alpha 2 Subunit). Affiliated tissues include tongue, and related phenotypes are seizures and behavioral abnormality

Disease Ontology : 12 An autosomal dominant nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy that has material basis in heterozygous mutation in the CHRNA2 gene on chromosome 8p21.

OMIM : 56 Nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy is a childhood-onset focal epilepsy that displays clusters of sleep-related hypermotor seizures (summary by Aridon et al., 2006). Some patients with CHRNA2 mutations may have a slightly different phenotype that is more consistent with a clinical diagnosis of benign familial infantile seizures (BFIS6) (Trivisano et al., 2015). For a general phenotypic description and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy, see ENFL1 (600513). For a general phenotypic description and a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of benign familial infantile seizures, see BFIS1 (601764). (610353)
