Arylsulfatase A pseudodeficiency and Lafora bodies in a patient with progressive myoclonic epilepsy.

Since age 12 years, a 25-year-old woman had a syndrome with myoclonic epilepsy, cerebellar signs, and spontaneous myoclonus. Skin biopsy showed typical Lafora bodies (LB), but she lacked a progressive course and mental impairment, hallmarks of Lafora disease. Lysosomal enzyme assays showed low level arylsulfatase A ( ASA) activity. DNA study disclosed a homozygous ASA Pd genotype. Both parents carried one Pd allele. The still-unknown relationship between the pathologic level of ASA activity and myoclonic epilepsies suggests introduction of ASA assays in patients with PME.[1]
