Purpose: Pyridoxine-dependent epilepsy (PDE) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder caused by mutations of the ALDH7A1 gene. We aimed to analyze the relations between the clinical diagnosis and treatment of PDE and ALDH7A1 gene mutations in Chinese PDE patients.
Methods: The clinical manifestations, diagnosis and treatment were observed in a cohort of PDE patients with early onset of seizure. Video-electroencephalogram (VEEG) and magnetic resonance imaging (MFtl) were performed. The mutation of ALDH7A1 gene was analyzed.
Results: Of eight patients, six were males and two were females. Age of seizure onset ranged from 1 to 100 days and 75% patients presented with seizures in the neonatal period. All patients showed different degrees of developmental delay. EEGs showed focal or multifocal discharges, or were normal. Molecular analysis revealed 10 ALDH7A1 mutations, including 2 splice site mutations. Five patients had mutation at IVS11+1G>A site, six patients had missense mutations, one with nonsense mutation and another patient had 9-bp genomic deletion mutation. Among them, two mutations were first time reported.
Conclusions: Seizure onset was in neonatal or early infantile period in our PDE patients. Early recognition and diagnosis of the disease is necessary for early intervention and improve cognitive development in the later life. In this study, on the molecular level, we also identified the splice site mutation IVS11+1G>A as a high prevalence mutation site with a frequency of 31.25% (5 of 16 alleles) in Chinese PDE patients.
