Eyelid myoclonia with absences (EMA) is a syndrome characterized by eyelid myoclonia with or without absences, eye closure-induced generalized electroencephalographic (EEG) paroxysms and photosensitivity. Few data are available about the prognostic factors of this syndrome. The main objectives of our study were to describe the clinical and EEG features of a group of patients with EMA and to evaluate the presence of prognostic factors.

Abstract

Eyelid myoclonia with absences (EMA) is a syndrome characterized by eyelid myoclonia with or without absences, eye closure-induced generalized electroencephalographic (EEG) paroxysms and photosensitivity. Few data are available about the prognostic factors of this syndrome. The main objectives of our study were to describe the clinical and EEG features of a group of patients with EMA and to evaluate the presence of prognostic factors.
