DiGeorge Syndrome and Depakote Use

An expecting mother using Depakote may give birth to a child with significant developmental problems and facial deformities. This is because of this drug’s potentially hazardous effects on a child in the womb. As these children grow, they may require significant treatment or management of symptoms to enjoy a basic standard of living. DiGeorge syndrome is one type of serious birth defect that may be caused by prenatal use of Depakote.

If your child is suffering with DiGeorge syndrome after you or the child’s mother took Depakote during pregnancy, we may be able to help you fight for financial compensation for those injuries. To learn more about your legal rights and options contact the Depakote facial deformity lawyers of Williams Hart by calling 800-761-3187.

Symptoms and Signs of DiGeorge Syndrome

DiGeorge syndrome can have a wide-ranging effect on a child’s health and development. This birth defect can affect a child’s facial features as well as other areas of their body, often requiring several treatments or methods of management to ease problems that a child may encounter.

The signs and symptoms of this birth defect can include the following:

  • Skeletal deformities
  • Congenital heart disease
  • Cleft palate and other facial deformities
  • Learning disabilities
  • Hearing loss

Given the far-reaching changes that this birth defect can cause to a child’s development, there are a variety of different facial features that can be altered. However, defects with a child’s palate, including cleft palate, are particularly common.
