Is there a treatment for Aicardi syndrome?
There is no cure for Aicardi syndrome nor is there a standard course of treatment. Most commonly, supportive treatment is used to manage the symptoms that are associated with Aicardi syndrome. The most common supportive treatment method for Aicardi syndrome involves managing the seizures and spasms that are brought on by the disease. A vagus nerve stimulator may be helpful in treating the seizures that accompany Aicardi syndrome. There are also programs to help both the children and their parents to cope with the intellectual disabilities that usually accompanies Aicardi syndrome.
