Abstract

WHAT IS KNOWN AND OBJECTIVE

Dravet syndrome (DS) is an intractable epilepsy syndrome. The three-drug combination therapy of sodium valproate (VPA), clobazam (CLB) and stiripentol (STP) is recommended worldwide.

CASE SUMMARY

We present a case of DS, in which treatment with CLB could not be continued because of the appearance of adverse reactions to it. Replacement with topiramate (TPM) proved to be markedly effective.

WHAT IS NEW AND CONCLUSION

It is suggested that combination therapy with VPA, TPM and STP is for DS epilepsy.
