Abstract

We described the electroclinical picture of 53 children with Dravet syndrome. 39 of our patients were analysed for SCN1A mutations, identified in 18 patients (46%). In order to clarify the role of mutations in this syndrome we analysed the electroclinical features of the 2 groups of patients. The mutations seem unrelated with the electroclinical features and prognosis, while the prognosis appears to be related with the electroclinical features. The prognosis is particularly poor in presence of typical SMEI features.
