West Syndrome - Epidemiology Disease Analysis by Key Assessments Forecast to 2030
‘West Syndrome - Epidemiology Forecast-2030’ report delivers an in-depth understanding of the disease, historical and forecasted West Syndrome epidemiology in the United States, EU5 (Germany, Spain, Italy, France, and United Kingdom) and Japan.
West Syndrome Understanding
West syndrome is an age-related specific epileptic encephalopathy due to multiple and diverse causes. It is characterized by a unique type of seizure called epileptic (infantile) spasms and gross EEG abnormalities of hypsarrhythmia. Usually, West syndrome consists of a characteristic triad: infantile spasms, the arrest of psychomotor development, and hypsarrhythmia, although one element may be missing. Spasms may be flexor, extensor, lightning, or nods, but most commonly they are mixed. Onset peaks are observed between the ages of 4-7 months and always occur before the age of 1 year. Also, boys are more commonly affected, and the prognosis is generally poor.

West syndrome may be separated into two groups: the symptomatic group, which is characterized by previous existence of brain damage signs (psychomotor retardation, neurologic signs, radiologic signs, or other types of seizures) or by a known etiology, and the smaller, cryptogenic group that is characterized by a lack of previous signs of brain damage and known etiology. The prognosis appears to be partly based on early therapy with adrenocorticotropic hormone or oral steroids. Besides, the ILAE new diagnostic scheme classifies West syndrome amongst ‘epileptic encephalopathies’ and prefers ‘epileptic spasms’ rather than ‘infantile spasms’.
It is a constellation of symptoms which are characterized by epileptic or infantile spasms, abnormal pattern of brain waves called hypsarrhythmia, and mental disability. The spasms that occur may range from violent jack-knife or “salaam” movements where the entire body bends in half, or they may change as little as a slight twitching of the shoulder or eye. These spasms usually start in the early months after birth, and medication can sometimes be used to help. They can also occur in elderly patients; they are called “epileptic spasms” rather than infantile spasms if this occurs.
