Abstract: We examined cases of severe myoclonic epilepsy of infancy (SMEI) for exon deletions or duplications within the sodium channel SCN1A gene by multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification. Two of 13 patients (15%) who fulfilled the strict clinical definition of SMEI but without SCN1A coding or splicing mutations had exonic deletions of SCN1A.
