Febrile seizures followed by recurrent, mostly tonic clonic, seizures with increasing frequency during the first three years of life. While there are many causes for childhood seizures, a neurologist can determine whether or not the suite of symptoms are consistent with Dravet and readily confirm a diagnosis with a genetic test. The earlier this is done the better as there are clear guidelines for initial seizure treatments, and many common anti epileptic drugs are counter-indicated for Dravet.
