Generalized epilepsy with febrile seizures plus Dravet syndrome corresponds a phenotype severe myoclonic epilepsy of infancy (SMEI), a form of intractable epilepsy of childhood.[1] [2] Prompt and precise diagnosis of Dravet is critical, due to the high risk of status epilepticus and sudden unexplained death in epilepsy (SUDEP), and that commonly prescribed antiepileptic sodium channel blockers aggravate Dravet seizures [3] The proportion of patients with SMEIB (i.e. borderline Dravet syndrome) who carry SCN1A mutations is the same as that observed in classical Dravet syndrome and, even within a same family, the same mutation can cause both typical and “borderline” forms [4] After Guerrini & Oguni SMEIB is not more recommended nomenclature
