Epilepsy & Seizures
Benign adult familial myoclonic epilepsy is an inherited epileptic syndrome characterized by cortical hand tremors, myoclonic jerks, and rare tonic-clonic seizures. In most affected individuals, the disease takes a benign course. However, at an advanced age, worsening of the tremor and myoclonus is common, and slight intellectual disability is present in a subset of patients. Diagnosis is based on the clinical and electrophysiological findings.
