Epilepsy with eyelid myoclonias and Sotos syndrome features in a patient with compound heterozygous missense variants in APC2 gene


Epilepsy with eyelid myoclonias, originally depicted by Jeavons in 1977, is a reflex epilepsy characterized by jerking of the eyelids with or without absences precipitated by eye closure or by light (eyelid myoclonia, EM), eye closure-induced EEG paroxysms and photosensitivity. Childhood-onset, female predominance and a normal development are typical features, though a mild intellectual disability has been reported. Sotos syndrome is a disorder characterized by a distinctive facial appearance, learning disability and overgrowth in childhood with macrocephaly, caused by heterozygous pathogenic variants or deletions in NSD1 gene.
