We present a patient affected by Dravet syndrome. Thorough analysis of genes that might be involved in the pathogenesis of such phenotype with both conventional and next generation sequencing resulted negative, therefore she was investigated by a-GCH that showed the presence of an unbalanced translocation resulting in a der(4)t(4;8)(p16.3,p23.3). This was an unconventional translocation, different from the recurrent translocation affiliated with WHS and did not involve LETM1.
Keywords: Dravet syndrome; WHS; der(4)t(4;8)(p16.3,p23.3).
