SCN8A Epilepsy (Cute Syndrome) and PCDH19 Epilepsy

Cute Syndrome refers to SCN8A Epilepsy (also known as SCN8A DEE), a rare disorder that causes a range of symptoms including severe epilepsy, developmental delay, and other medical challenges. Every child with this condition is affected differently and with varying severity.

PCDH19 Epilepsy is a rare epilepsy syndrome with early onset seizures, cognitive and sensory delays, and behavioral problems. It is caused by a change or mutation of the PCDH19 gene found on the X chromosome. The PCDH19 gene makes a protein which helps brain cells communicate.
