Walker-Warburg syndrome

How might Walker-Warburg syndrome be treated?

There is currently no cure or treatment for Walker-Warburg syndrome. Management is generally only supportive and preventive. Individuals who develop seizures are typically treated with anticonvulsants. A few children require surgical procedures, such as shunting for hydrocephalus or correction of encephalocele. Physical therapy can be offered to aid in development or prevent worsening of contractures; however, the benefit of this has not been established. Feeding usually needs to be monitored and in some cases, a supplemental nasogastric or gastric feeding tube may be necessary.
