Summaries for Genetic Epilepsy with Febrile Seizures Plus

Genetics Home Reference : 25 Genetic epilepsy with febrile seizures plus (GEFS+) is a spectrum of seizure disorders of varying severity. GEFS+ is usually diagnosed in families whose members have a combination of febrile seizures, which are triggered by a high fever, and recurrent seizures (epilepsy) of other types, including seizures that are not related to fevers (afebrile seizures). The additional seizure types usually involve both sides of the brain (generalized seizures); however, seizures that involve only one side of the brain (partial seizures) occur in some affected individuals. The most common types of seizure in people with GEFS+ include myoclonic seizures, which cause involuntary muscle twitches; atonic seizures, which involve sudden episodes of weak muscle tone; and absence seizures, which cause loss of consciousness for short periods that appear as staring spells.

MalaCards based summary : Genetic Epilepsy with Febrile Seizures Plus, also known as generalized epilepsy with febrile seizures plus, is related to epilepsy and febrile seizures. An important gene associated with Genetic Epilepsy with Febrile Seizures Plus is SCN1A (Sodium Voltage-Gated Channel Alpha Subunit 1), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Activation of cAMP-Dependent PKA and Cardiac conduction. Affiliated tissues include brain, t cells and myeloid.
