Paroxysmal exercise-induced dyskinesia (PED) and epilepsy without intellectual disability have recently been recognized as manifestations of deficiency of the glucose transporter GLUT1, due to mutations in the gene SLC2A1. We describe a family with six definitely affected members in two generations. Two had PED, three had epilepsy, and one had both. A missense mutation in SLC2A1 (c.950A>C; p.N317T) was detected in five living affected members, but absent in three nonaffected first-degree members and in one subject believed to be a phenocopy. The clinical picture of mild epilepsy with onset in adolescence or early adulthood plus PED should raise a suspicion of GLUT1 deficiency.
