Although the condition could also be caused by structural, infectious, metabolic, and/or immune etiologies, it has recently been estimated that a genetic etiology could be established in up to 40% of such patients.[2] Molecular testing with a genomic approach would allow delineation of the precise genetic cause, treatment stratification, as well as further detection of pharmacogenetic variants to avoid severe adverse drug reactions toward antiepileptic drugs, which is of particular clinical importance in Asian populations.
Cases of iHME present as sporadic cases and do not show familial inheritance or sex preference.2 This fact makes it very difficult to identify a particular genetic etiology for iHME.
