What is the prognosis for Dravet syndrome?

A Answers (1)

  • As children with Dravet syndrome get older, their decline in cognitive function stabilizes, and in many, it improves slightly. However, most teenagers with Dravet syndrome are dependent on caregivers. The degree of cognitive impairment appears to correlate with the frequency of seizures.

    This answer is based on source information from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.
