Abstract

The neurobiologic basis for autism is not well understood. In contrast, there have been several recent discoveries into the genetics of generalized epilepsy with febrile seizures plus, a group of epilepsy syndromes characterized by multiple seizure phenotypes. Here we describe a family with generalized epilepsy with febrile seizures plus and variably expressed autism spectrum disorder that does not show linkage to any of the four known generalized epilepsy with febrile seizures plus loci. A relationship between these two disorders has not previously been described.
