Abstract
Mutations in CACNA1A were previously described in familial hemiplegic migraine, episodic ataxia type 2, and spinocerebellar ataxia type 6. We report on an 11-year-old girl with episodes of seizures, ataxia, headache, a decreased level of consciousness, and motor regression, with a background of mental retardation and mild cerebellar atrophy. Sequence analysis of the CACNA1A gene revealed a de novo Ile712Val sequence variant, which was not reported previously.
