A description is given of an eight‐year‐old boy with extrasystoles, seizures of muscular weakness, and multiple developmental anomalies (dwarfism, scaphocephalic skull, hypertelorism, bilateral ptosis, low‐set ears, broad nose, mandibular hypoplasia, aplasia of a number of teeth, defect of both the soft and osseous palate, inward bending of the fifth fingers, single transverse palmar crease of both hands, and cryptorchidism). These findings suggest a specific syndrome, but no similar… 
Recurrent syncope in the Andersen Tawil syndrome – Cardiac or neurological?
Syndrome of palatal myoclonus and progressive ataxia
TLDR
The syndrome of progressive ataxia and palatal myoclonus should be distinguished from other ataxias and degenerations that affect the brainstem and cerebellum.
Andersen–Tawil Syndrome and Hypothyroidism: A Case Report with an Unusual Association
TLDR
A case of ATS with hypothyroidism is reported, to the best of authors' knowledge, no such association has been reported in the literature.
Multiple anomalies, hypokalemic paralysis and partial symptomatic relief by terbutaline
TLDR
A patient presented with a syndrome including elements of familial periodic paralysis with hypokalaemia, long QT syndrome, ventricular ectopy, myopathy with fibre‐type disproportion and dysmorphic features resembling Treacher Collins' syndrome, which experienced two attacks of respiratory arrest, the second being fatal.
Concomitant presentation of Anderson-Tawil syndrome and myasthenia gravis in an adult patient: A case report
TLDR
The present case report was the first to describe concomitant presentation of both Andersen-Tawil syndrome and Myasthenia gravis, which represents a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge.
Hypokalemic periodic paralysis, facial dysmorphism and ventricular arrhythmia (clinical triad of Andersen-Tawil syndrome).
TLDR
A case of hypokalemic periodic paralysis with dysmorphic facial features and ventricular arrhythmia resembling Andersen-Tawil syndrome is reported.
Andersen-Tawil syndrome presenting as a fixed myopathy
TLDR
The value of repeated exercise CMAP testing is illustrated by the reduction in CMAP decrement postexercise, as well as the improvement in baseline CMAP amplitude both of which mirror the patient’s report of improvement in strength, despite no change in MRC grade.
Report of a Turkish girl with Andersen-Tawil syndrome
The case is a 9-year-old girl with a history of syncope attacks for 6 years and recurrent paraplegia attacks for 1.5 years. She was diagnosed with epilepsy and was given valproate for the attacks,
Andersen syndrome autosomal dominant in three generations.
TLDR
A three-generation family with 10 affected members with the largest number of cases reported in one family of Andersen syndrome, with variable expression in the classical triad, permits an early diagnosis and detects the severe systemic manifestations that are associated with this syndrome.
Potentially fata1 cardiac dysrhythmia and hyperkalemic periodic paralysis
TLDR
periodic paralysis should be considered as the diagnosis in children with BVT, a potentially fatal condition, as well as other antiarrhythmic drugs.

Multiple Lentigenes Syndrome: Complex Comprising Multiple Lentigenes, Electrocardiographic Conduction Abnormalities, Ocular Hypertelorism, Pulmonary Stenosis, Abnormalities of Genitalia, Retardation of Growth, Sensorineural Deafness, and Autosomal Dominant Hereditary Pattern
TLDR
It is likely, on the basis of the following literature review and additional case material, that multiple lentigenes commonly represent one facet of a more generalized hereditary syndrome.
Diagnosis and treatment of myasthenia gravis in infancy, childhood, and adolescence
TLDR
The present report consists of a follow-up study of 51 patients whose symptoms began before they were 17 years of age, and the results of the operative treatment have been evaluated and compared, as far as possible, with those of drug treatment alone.
FAMILIAL HEART DISEASE WITH SKELETAL MALFORMATIONS
TLDR
The family reported here is thought to be of sufficient interest to warrant recording, since not only were subjects found with congenital cardiac defects throughout four generations, but these were closely linked with malformations in the skeletal system.
