Pediatric Neurology – Genetic Disorders

October 17, 2021


There is a multitude of genetic disorders that affect the brain and development. And we try to diagnose those children when they come to us and they usually come to us because of developmental problems. Some of them may have seizures. In fact, we do a lot of genetic testing now over the past few years on children that have seizures and we find things which we didn’t find five or six years ago. So this is almost been a new change in the way things are done and the things that we find as causes of developmental problems. And even epilepsy is very commonly associated with genetic disorders. So we’ll see children that have those kinds of conditions that usually have seizures or more commonly developmental delays and impairments.
