Abstract

Although myoclonus and dystonia are the hallmarks of myoclonus-dystonia (M-D), psychiatric features, particularly obsessive-compulsive disorder and alcohol dependence, have been reported in three families linked to chromosome 7q21. As the epsilon sarcoglycan (SGCE) gene for M-D was subsequently identified, we evaluated the relationship between psychiatric features and SGCE mutations in these original and two additional families and confirm that OCD and alcohol dependence are associated with manifesting mutated SGCE.
