Clinicoelectrographic concordance between monozygotic twins with severe myoclonic epilepsy in infancy.

Author information

National Epilepsy Center, Shizuoka Higashi Hospital, Japan.


Clinical features of a pair of monozygotic male twins, both with severe myoclonic epilepsy in infancy (SME), are described. They were almost completely concordant with respect to seizure onset, clinical seizure symptomatology, interictal, and ictal EEG expressions and seizure prognosis. The existence of such twins suggests the possibility that a genetic factor is determinant in the etiology of this particular epileptic syndrome.
