More About Teddy

Also known as Myoclonic Astatic Epilepsy (MAE), is a rare form of Epilepsy that typically begins in early childhood. Its characterized by a combination of different seizure types, including myoclonic jerks and drop attacks. The exact cause is often unknown and it can be challenging to treat.

Myoclonic jerks are brief, involuntary muscle movements or contractions. They can affect a specific muscle or group of muscles and often appear as sudden, shock-like movements. These jerks can be caused by various factors, including neurological condition medications, or even normal physiological responses.

In context of epilepsy, myoclonic jerks may manifest as brief muscle twitches or spasms and are commonly associated with certain seizure disorders, such as Myoclonic Astatic Epilepsy.

Drop attacks, also known as atonic seizures, are a type of seizure characterized by a sudden and brief loss of muscle strength and tone.

During a drop attack, a person may experience a sudden collapse or fall to the ground. These seizures are typically very brief, lasting only a few seconds, but they can lead to injuries if the person falls.

Diagnosed with Round Cell Sarcoma with a CIC & NUTM1 mutation

Sarcoma is a type of cancer that develops in the connective tissues of the body, such as muscles, bones, tendons, and cartilage. It is relatively rare compared to other forms of cancer. Sarcomas are categorized into TWO main types:

Soft tissue sarcomas – which arise in soft tissues like muscle

Fat bone sarcomas – which originate in the bone

Round cell sarcoma with a CIC and NUTMI mutation refers to a type of cancer characterized by genetic alterations in the CIC and NUTMl genes.

These mutations can contribute to the development and progression of the sarcoma.

Treatment typically involves surgery, radiation therapy, and sometimes chemotherapy, depending on the type and stage of the sarcoma.
