We report the clinical features of, and the molecular study performed on, a Spanish family with essential tremor (ET), late onset epilepsy and autosomal dominant hypokalemic periodic paralysis (hypoPP). The presence of hypoPP in this kindred suggested an ion channel as a candidate gene for ET. Our study identified an Arg528His CACNL1A3 mutation in patients with hypoPP, and excluded this mutation as the cause of tremor or epilepsy in this kindred.
