A number sign (#) is used with this entry because of evidence that episodic ataxia type 2 (EA2) is caused by heterozygous mutation in the calcium ion channel.

Aminoacidurias, including Hartnup disease, intermittent branched-chain ketoaciduria, and isovaleric acidemia, can be diagnosed by identification of increased levels of certain amino acids in plasma and increased excretion of amino acids fpisodica the urine. References Kurian M, Dale R.

Episodic Ataxia Type 2. The locus for this disorder has been mapped to the long arm of chromosome 1 1q Generally acetazolomide is used as the firstline therapy, although there are no specific recommendations regarding which medication should be trialed first [ Ilg et al ].

The clinical spectrum of familial hemiplegic migraine associated with mutations in a neuronal calcium channel. Management Evaluations Following Initial Diagnosis To establish the extent of disease and needs in an individual diagnosed with episodic ataxia type 2 EA2the following evaluations are recommended: Unfortunately, it is not free to produce.

See Molecular Genetics for information on allelic variants detected in this gene. Biochemical properties and subcellular distribution of the BI and rbA isoforms of alpha 1A subunits of brain calcium channels. Clinical Variability Reinson et al.


Six patients showed interictal cerebellar deficits.

In some cases, persistent attacks result in tendon shortening, for which surgery is required. Nomenclature EA2 has also been known as periodic vestibulocerebellar ataxia and atxxia episodic ataxia.

89. Ataxia episódica tipo 2

Episodic ataxia, type 5. A heterozygous pathogenic variant in OTC in episovica female may lead to partial deficiency. Type 1 episodic ataxia EA1 is characterized by attacks of generalized ataxia induced by emotion or stress, with myokymia both during and episodjca attacks.

Spinocerebellar ataxia type 6 SCA6 is characterized by adult-onset, slowly progressive cerebellar ataxia, dysarthria, and nystagmus.

Ornithine transcarbamylase OTC deficiency is an inborn error of metabolism of the urea cycle that causes hyperammonemia. Please consider making a donation now and again in the future. In fact, juvenile myoclonic epilepsy and EA5 are allelic and ataia proteins with similar dysfunction.

Acetazolamide is effective in controlling or reducing the frequency and severity of attacks in two thirds of individuals with EA2 [ Mantuano et alIlg et al ]. Two clinical forms exist: Individuals with SCA6 can present with episodic ataxia, mostly during the first years of the disorder.

In the family reported by Boel and Casaerall affected members had their first attacks before the age of 10 and the symptoms episldica disappeared during the second decade of life. Baloh RW, Winder A. Coding and noncoding variation of the human calcium-channel beta4-subunit gene CACNB4 in patients with idiopathic generalized epilepsy and episodic ataxia.

Frequency of the mutation and genotype-phenotype correlations. Nonconsensus intronic mutations cause episodic ataxia. Differential Diagnosis Episodic ataxai can occur sporadically or in a number of hereditary disorders.

Only comments seeking to improve the quality and accuracy of information on the Orphanet website are accepted. Patients with pure EA5 present with recurrent episodes of ataxia with vertigo. Episodic ataxia type 2: Patients typically present with bouts of ataxia lasting less than 30 minutes and occurring once or twice daily. Episodic ataxia type 2 Epiisodica should be suspected in individuals with the following clinical, neuroimaging, EMG, and family history findings.

Episodic ataxia

The phenotype correlates with the extent of glutamate transporter dysfunction [deVries et al ] and, as a result, the phenotype is quite variable. Attacks lasted between one-half hour and 6 hours.

This patient carries a proline to arginine substitution in the fifth transmembrane-spanning segment of the gene SLC1A3. The second form, EA2, is often associated with nystagmus or truncal instability and shows beneficial response to acetazolamide. This gene encodes the excitatory amino acid transporter 1 EAAT1 protein, which is responsible for glutamate uptake.
