Genetic disorders of ion channel function are being increasingly recognized due to advances in molecular genetic techniques. Disorders such as those illustrated herein, offer unique opportunities to correlate clinical phenotypes to specific physiological disturbances at the molecular level. These advances in understanding pathophysiology will almost certainly lead to more rationale drug therapy, improved diagnosis, and a more complete appreciation for the importance of ion channels in health and disease.
