Definition

An autosomal dominant form of epilepsy characterized by focal seizures arising from different cortical regions, including the temporal, frontal, parietal, and occipital lobes. Seizure types commonly include temporal lobe epilepsy, frontal lobe epilepsy, and nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy. Some patients may have intellectual disability or autism spectrum disorders. Seizure onset usually occurs in the first or second decades, although later onset has been reported, and there is phenotypic variability within families. A subset of patients have structural brain abnormalities. Penetrance of the disorder is incomplete.
