Mutations in the WWOX gene have been reported in a number of patients with various neurological disorders including spino-cerebellar ataxia, intellectual disability, epilepsy, and epileptic encephalopathy. We aimed to study the clinical, electrographic, and imaging features of two new cases with WWOX mutations and compare them to previously reported cases with WWOX mutations.
