PURPOSE To investigate the neurochemical pattern in patients with benign adult familial myoclonic epilepsy (BAFME/FAME), an inherited form of myoclonic epilepsy, by proton magnetic resonance (MR) spectroscopy ((1)H-MRS). METHODS Eleven BAFME patients from three families showing linkage to 2p11.1-q12.2 were compared with 11 age-matched healthy control subjects. RESULTS MR imaging of all the patients and healthy subjects exhibited no structural abnormalities on detailed visual assessment… CONTINUE READING
