Heterozygous mutations in ATP1A3 in patients with alternating hemiplegia of. Alternating hemiplegia of childhood is an ultra-rare neurological disorder named for the transient episodes, often referred to as "attacks", of hemiplegia from which those with the disorder suffer.

It typically presents before the age of 18 months. These hemiplegic attacks can cause anything from mild weakness to complete paralysis on one or both sides of the body, and they can vary greatly in. Alternating hemiplegia of childhood (AHC) is a neurological disorder that usually affects children before 18 months of age.

The disorder is characterized by recurrent episodes of paralysis that involve one or both sides of the body, multiple limbs, or a single limb. Alternating hemiplegia of childhood is primarily caused by mutations in the ATP1A3 gene.

Very rarely, a mutation in the ATP1A2 gene is involved in the condition. These genes provide instructions for making very similar proteins.

They function as different forms of one piece, the alpha subunit, of a larger protein complex called Na+/K+ ATPase; the two versions of the complex are found in.

Alternating Hemiplegia is a rare pathological condition of the musculoskeletal system in which a child has episodes of severe weakness affecting one side of the body. 1 This weakness may affect all the muscles or some muscles of the body.

Once the episode is over, the child regains the strength back but will again have the same weakness when another episode of Alternating Hemiplegia.

It was only when the patient had a left-sided attack, witnessed by a physician, that alternating hemiplegia of childhood (AHC) was suspected and consent was obtained for sequencing of the ATP1A3 gene (implicated in AHC). The patient had a de novo cC>T, heterozygous mutation in exon 17 of the ATP1A3 gene on chromosome We report the case of a 31/2 year old girl who had had attacks of alternating hemiplegia from the age of 6 months.

Peculiar features from the etiopathogenetic angle seem to be the presence of a ring of mild stenosis of the vertebral artery on the right side, the influence of the upright posture on the onset of the attacks and perhaps also of variations in atmospheric pressure. This signs and symptoms information for Alternating Hemiplegia has been gathered from various sources, may not be fully accurate, and may not be the full list of Alternating Hemiplegia signs or Alternating Hemiplegia symptoms.

Furthermore, signs and symptoms of Alternating Hemiplegia may vary on an individual basis for each patient. the patient was given a diagnosis of AHC. Over the next several years, the patient continued to have epi-sodes of alternating hemiplegia and by 2 years old he began to have episodes of quadriplegia.

His attacks clustered during the summer months and were trig. What is Alternating Hemiplagia of Childhood (AHC).

The diagnosis and treatment of patients with Alternating Hemiplegia of Childhood (AHC) and related disorders should be provided by a multidisciplinary team experienced with the spectrum of presentations of this disease, with its related disorders, with its complex and fluctuating manifestations, and with cutting edge advances occurring in the field.We examined a patient with alternating hemiplegia of childhood (AHC) who had over a year history of AHC to investigate the origin of the neurological deterioration with increasing age.

Hemiplegic attacks had occurred consistently at a frequency of a few per week since infancy, and he first experienced attacks of cerebellar ataxia at the age. The name Alternating Hemiplegia of Childhood is really a misnomer.

Although attacks lessen in frequency and severity as children enter adolescence and adulthood, symptoms persist throughout life and are usually accompanied by pervasive developmental delay.
