Question: West Syndrome????? The 8 month old that I watch was just diagnosed with west syndrome. They think it might be a very minor case of it. But nobody knows yet. The doctors aren't telling his mother much. Does anybody know about this? What is it? How is it treated? Can it be cured? Please share any information that you have on it. Thank so much!!!!!

Answer: it is also called infantile spasms usually there is an underlying structural brain abnormality but as ur doctor said it may be very minor. it can be only controlled by drugs but it will not be cured. if other systems are ok the child will be alright with medical treatment. best wishes.
