Genetic epilepsy syndromesGene: CLN6
PMID:30561534. Berkovic et al., 2019 report phenotypes of patients with CLN6 pathogenic variants from 13 unrelated families (homozygous in 4 families and compound het in 9 families). The typical presentation was progressive myoclonus epilepsy with debilitating myoclonic seizures and relatively infrequent tonic-clonic seizures.

PMID:31216804. Zhang et al. 2019 identify the pathogenic gene variants and clinical phenotype features of 26 children with progressive myoclonic epilepsy. 1 patient had a variant in CLN6 (full English text not available).

Could neuronal Ceroid-Lipofuscinoses be tested through a different referral pathway? AR neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis 6 - clinical course includes seizures. Another type is known as Kufs type (adult onset) of which there is an A and B sub-type - A is characterised by myoclonic epilepsy and B is characterised by dementia. Arsov et al, 2011 - 3 families with AR Kufs disease - hom or compound het mutations in CLN6 - mutations then found in 4 additional families with Kuffs disease - yielding a total of 9 different pathogenic mutations. All patients from the 7 families had progressive myoclonic epilepsy followed by dementia - consistent with type A.
