 Dravet Syndrome is a rare, catastrophic, lifelong form of epilepsy that begins in the first year of life with frequent and/or seizures.  It affects 1:15,700 individuals! While seizures persist, other comorbidities such as developmental delay and abnormal EEGs are often not evident until the second or third year of life.  Some common issues associated with Dravet Syndrome include:

Prolonged seizures
Frequent seizures
Behavioral and developmental delays
Movement and balance issues
Orthopedic conditions
Delayed language and speech issues
Chronic infections

 

Current treatment options are limited, and the constant care required for someone suffering from Dravet Syndrome can severely impact the patient's and the family's quality of life.  Patients with Dravet Syndrome face a 15-20% mortality rate due to SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy), prolonged seizures, seizure-related accidents and infections.

Research for a cure offers patients and families hope for a better quality of life for their loved ones.
