Abstract

Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is defined by degeneration of anterior horn cells in the spinal cord. Progressive myoclonic epilepsy (PME) is characterized by myoclonic and generalized seizures with progressive neurological deterioration. The association between SMA and PME has not yet been fully understood.
