Abstract

Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy(JME) of Janz is a syndrome of generalized age related epilepsy with increasing incidence and probable autosomal recessive trait. We have experienced 2 female patients who had awakening myoclonus in both arms, which had started in their early 10th. The patterns of seirures and electroencephalographic findings were consistent with those of JME which had been first described as impulsive petit mal by Janz. We report these cases with brief review of literatures.
