Diagnosing Dravet Syndrome
Diagnostic genetic testing for Dravet Syndrome is available in the UK from the NHS.
Early diagnosis and effective treatment can make a huge difference – it saves unnecessary investigations, reduces seizures and may improve long-term outcomes.
If you’re concerned that an individual you know might have Dravet Syndrome, speak to a doctor without delay. Any child with suspected Dravet Syndrome should be assessed by a paediatrician with expertise in epilepsy or a child neurologist.
