Abstract
The authors report a family affected by multiple daily episodes of transient visual loss, elicited repetitive daily blindness (ERDB); the onset was early in life, and the disease followed a benign course. ERDB is associated with childhood epilepsy and familial hemiplegic migraine, apparently segregating as a monogenic, autosomal dominant condition with variable expression. Genetic linkage to CACNA1A was excluded.
