Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Abstract We report a female patient of German descent with a molecular diagnosis of SCA13 who presented with a history of cerebellar ataxia and epilepsy. The underlying mutation R420H had been shown to cause a dominant negative effect on the functional properties of the voltage-gated potassium channel KCNC3. Despite widespread KCNC3 expression in the CNS, the patient presented with a left mesiotemporal EEG focus and left hippocampal sclerosis. This is the first case which reports an association between mesial temporal lobe epilepsy and SCA13. This demonstrates that epilepsy of structural-metabolic cause may be contingent upon genetically defined channelopathies.
