Benign adult familial myoclonus epilepsy (BAFME) has an autosomal dominant trait, and its primary symptoms are cortical tremor (tremulous myoclonus) mimicking essential tremor and infrequent generalized seizures [1,2]. In Japan, BAFME has been described throughout the late 20th century and has been referred to as cortical tremor [1], BAFME [2], familial cortical myoclonic tremor [3], familial cortical tremor with epilepsy [4], and familial adult myoclonic epilepsy (FAME) [5]. Many similar case reports followed after 2000 in Europe, where different names have been used to refer to the condition, such as, autosomal dominant cortical myoclonus and epilepsy (ADCME) [6], and familial cortical myoclonic tremor with epilepsy (FCMTE) [7].
