Depakote Use and Pierre Robin Syndrome

If Depakote is taken by a pregnant woman, it can have a severe impact on her unborn child’s health, causing serious birth defects while the child is still in the womb. In particular, these birth defects can cause a range of different facial deformities that can be both physically and emotionally devastating. Some children may develop a type of facial deformity known as Pierre Robin syndrome, which can be incredibly dangerous if a child with this condition isn’t cared for properly.

If you’re looking for financial help due to overwhelming medical bills or additional losses resulting from Depakote-related deformities, we may be able to help you. For more information about pursuing compensation from the company responsible for your child’s suffering, contact a Depakote attorney from Williams Hart today at 800-761-3187.

Signs of Pierre Robin Syndrome

A child born with Pierre Robin syndrome may display some commonly observed features, which can create potential health problems in the future. The most common signs of this deformity include the following:

  • Underdeveloped jaw
  • A tongue that may appear unusually far back in the mouth
  • A cleft palate

In addition to these signs, a child may display other unusual features, such as teeth at birth.

Beyond any emotional and social problems a child with Pierre Robin syndrome may face, this birth defect sometimes results in breathing difficulties for affected children. If not cared for properly, the child’s tongue can block his or her airway, causing suffocation.
