I am a clinical geneticist in Canada. I have recently seen a family
in which there are three generations with a history of benign infantile
The convulsions start at about three months of age (NOT NEONATAL), and are both partial and generalized.
No underlying etiology has been found. The seizures stop within one to two months, and the mental development is subsequently normal.
Is anyone interested in samples from this family ? They expressed interest in genetic testing, mostly to prevent a major work up for future children who begin seizures.
Thank you for your help.
