Abstract

We report a six-year-old girl with Cardio-facio-cutaneous (CFC) syndrome who developed acute encephalopathy after the recurrence of status epilepticus. While epileptic encephalopathy and severe epilepsy have been mentioned as frequent complications of the CFC syndrome, no previous reports have shown a case of the CFC syndrome complicated with acute encephalopathy. Here we discuss the possibility for the linkage between the development of acute encephalopathy and CFC syndrome which is generally susceptible to seizures or epilepsy.
