A, Brain MRI of patient 2 at the age of 8 WK shows dilatation of the anterior horns of the lateral ventricle and apparently normal gyri. B, Interictal EEG of patient 2 shows a marked depression of background activity, intermixed with asymmetric paroxysmal bursts.

The structure of exon 2 of the ARX gene and representative electropherograms in patient 1 and his parents. Both parents have the wild-type sequence encoding 16 alanine residues, whereas the patient has a hemizygous mutant sequence with a duplication of 33 bp, which encodes 11 alanine residues and results in an expanded repeat of 27 alanine residues. Polyalanine tract (A), nuclear localization sequence (N), and homeobox (H) are illustrated in the structure of exon 2.9

A, Photograph of patient 1's external genitalia, showing a small penis with an apparently normal scrotum. B, Interictal EEG of patient 1, showing an asynchronous pattern, with high-voltage slow wave bursts mixed with spikes and sharp waves, and a low-voltage suppression background. C, Brain MRI of patient 1, demonstrating lateral ventricular dilatation with a frontal dominancy, suggesting a small caudate nucleus, thin corpus callosum (not shown), and delayed myelination in the white matter.
