What is Aicardi Syndrome?
(Symptoms, Causes & Treatment)
According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, aicardi syndrome is a condition that occurs almost exclusively in females. The disorder is characterized by three main features that occur together in most affected individuals. People with Aicardi syndrome have absent or underdeveloped tissue connecting the left and right halves of the brain (agenesis or dysgenesis of the corpus callosum). They have seizures beginning in infancy (infantile spasms), which tend to progress to recurrent seizures (epilepsy) that can be difficult to treat. Affected individuals also have chorioretinal lacunae, which are defects in the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye (retina).
