Looking to understand if your child’s seizures may be genetic in cause?
We are here to help.
If you have a child with either of the following, with or without developmental delays or other medical problems, genetic testing may be recommended.
- A history of two or more seizures without a known cause OR
- A diagnosis of epilepsy
Approximately 20-30% of all children with unproved seizures are found to have an underlying genetic cause.1 Identifying if there is an underlying genetic cause may help in providing medical care recommendations for your child, and may also lead to access to new treatment options.
