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.

Acetazolamide is effective in controlling or reducing the frequency and severity of attacks in most individuals; typical starting dose is mg a day given orally, but doses as high as mg twice a day may be required. Because it is likely atazia testing methodology and our understanding of genes, allelic variants, and diseases will improve in the future, episoodica should be given to banking DNA of affected individuals.

Unfortunately, it is not free to produce. One study reported vertigo and weakness accompanying the ataxia in more than half of individuals with genetically confirmed EA2 [ Jen et al ].

Health care resources for this disease Expert centres Diagnostic tests 49 Patient organisations 27 Orphan drug s 0. Between attacks they have nystagmus and dysarthria.

The authors suggested that dystonia may be a manifestation of a degenerative cerebellar process.

Onset is typically in childhood or early adolescence age range years. The material is in no way intended to replace professional medical care by a qualified specialist and should not be used as a basis episodicz diagnosis or treatment.

The authors found, as have others e. This section is not meant to address all personal, cultural, or ethical issues that individuals may face or to substitute for consultation with a genetics professional. Koller and Bahamon-Dussan reported a family with affected individuals in 3 generations, including 1 instance of male-to-male transmission. Onset was before age 20 years in all cases except 1 with reported ataxia at age The rearrangements are likely to be pathogenic given their segregation with the disease in large families with EA2.


There are currently 17 K V 1. In some individuals, slowly progressive cerebellar ataxia occurs. These patients are responsive to acetazolamide. Clinical features Episodic attacks:.

Episodes are triggered by exposure to sunlight, emotional stress, and sulfonamide drugs. Cellular studies showed that the pathogenic variant results in decreased glutamate uptake [ Jen et alde Vries epizodica al ].

89. Ataxia episódica tipo 2

This disorder may have first been recognized by Parker Isovaleric acidemia OMIM occurs in two forms. Delayed cerebral edema and fatal coma after minor head trauma: EA5 patients have a cysteine to phenylalanine mutation at position For a discussion of genetic heterogeneity of episodic ataxia, see EA1 Episodic ataxia type 3 EA3 is a very rare form of Hereditary episodic ataxia see this term characterized by vestibular ataxia, vertigo, tinnitus, and interictal myokymia.

Attacks generally begin in early childhood and last throughout the patients’ lifetime. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.


Acetazolamide prevented the attacks. Differences in perspective may exist among medical professionals and within families regarding the use of prenatal testing, particularly if the testing is being considered for the purpose of pregnancy termination rather than early diagnosis. Prenatal Testing and Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis Once the CACNA1A pathogenic variant has been identified in an affected family member, prenatal testing for a pregnancy at increased risk and preimplantation genetic diagnosis for EA2 are possible.

Familial hemiplegic migraine FHM. ArgTer — have been associated with fluctuating weakness manifesting as a myasthenic syndrome in individuals with EA2 [ Jen et al ].

After 7 months of treatment, those who took 4-AP had a significant reduction in the frequency of episodes and a marginally significant decrease in the duration of attacks compared to those who took a placebo.

PMC ] [ PubMed: Seizures are likely due to altered firing of hippocampal neurons KCNA1 null mice have seizures for this reason.

The function of the different CACNA1A isoforms remains to be demonstrated, although differences have been measured episodicz phosphorylation acceptor sites [ Sakurai et atsxia ].

In cell culture assays, this mutation results in drastically decreased glutamate uptake in a dominant-negative manner. The patient usually feels normal by the next morning.
