Dravet syndrome, formerly known as severe myoclonic epilepsy of infancy (SMEI), is a severe kind of epilepsy which causes seizures. High fever is usually a trigger for these seizures. It is a rare disorder that affects an estimated 1 in every 20,000-40,000 births.
It usually develops in the sixth month of age. It is caused by loss-of-function mutations in one copy of the SCN1A gene. Patients with Dravet syndrome are not able to produce sufficient levels of functional Nav1.1 sodium channel, preventing inhibitory neurons from firing properly.
