Differential Diagnosis Episodic ataxia can occur sporadically or in a number of hereditary disorders. Two clinical forms exist: CACNA1A is heavily expressed in Purkinje cells of the cerebellum where it is involved in coupling action potentials with neurotransmitter release.
Frequency of attacks can range from one to two times per year eepisodica three to four times per week [ von Brederlow et alMantuano et al ]. Frequency ranged from monthly to yearly and tended to decrease with age. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. As described in Table 1, most of the known EA1 associated mutations result in a drastic decrease in the amount of current through K V 1.
Acetazolamide is effective in controlling or reducing the frequency and severity of attacks in most individuals; typical starting dose is mg a day given orally, but doses as high as mg twice a day may be required. Allelic modifying factors such as number of CAG ataxua in exon 47 of CACNA1A do not appear to influence the severity of attacks or the persistence of neurologic symptoms between attacks [ Denier et al ].
Continuum Lifelong Learning Neurol. Jen et al  reported a boy age ten years with a severe form of episodic ataxia with episodkca, migraine, and alternating hemiplegia triggered by febrile illness. Differences in perspective may exist among medical professionals and within families regarding the use of prenatal testing, particularly if the testing is being considered for the purpose of pregnancy termination rather than early diagnosis.
The causative locus has been mapped to a 4 cM region on chromosome 1q42 between markers D1S and D1S [ Steckley et alCader et al ].
The chronic form is associated with periodic attacks of severe ketoacidosis between asymptomatic periods. Onset as late as age 61 years has been reported [ Imbrici et al ]. Coding and noncoding variation of the human calcium-channel beta4-subunit gene CACNB4 in patients with idiopathic generalized epilepsy and episodic ataxia. References Kurian M, Dale R. He also has presented, at various times, with migraines. EA1 is an example of a synaptopathy. Generally acetazolomide is used as the firstline therapy, although there are no specific recommendations regarding which medication should be trialed first [ Ilg et al ].
PheCysand c. Management Evaluations Following Initial Diagnosis To establish the extent of disease and needs in an individual diagnosed with episodic ataxia type 2 EA2the following evaluations are recommended: This condition is treated by the elimination of branched-chain amino acids leucine, isoleucine, valine from the diet. Onset is typically in childhood or early adolescence age range years.
Treatment is oral administration of nicotinamide. Their principal role is believed to be in synaptic transmission.

Ornithine transcarbamylase OTC deficiency is an inborn error of metabolism of the urea cycle that causes hyperammonemia. Patients typically present with bouts of ataxia lasting less than 30 minutes and occurring once or twice daily. Nomenclature EA2 has also been known as periodic vestibulocerebellar ataxia and acetazolamide-responsive episodic ataxia.
