|Abstract:||SCN1A mutations account for a large proportion of Dravet syndrome patients, and are reported in other cases of epilepsy, such as some families with genetic epilepsy with febrile seizures plus (GEFS+). While most Dravet syndrome cases are caused by de novo mutations, 5% inherit a mutation from a mildly affected or symptom-free parent. Parental mosaicism has been identified, with documented cases involving truncating mutations or gene rearrangements. We describe a Roma/Gypsy family, where a missense mutation in SCN1A, p.D194N, is transmitted from a mosaic GEFS+ father to a child with Dravet syndrome. Mosaicism may be more common than assumed and should be considered regardless of the nature of the mutation.|
