Does seizure activity increase when children with CdLS enter adulthood?

No, seizures can occur at any time in CdLS and can occur for the first time in adolescence or even adulthood.  They do not occur more frequently in the older age group.  They occur more frequently in childhood age groups. Overall there is about a 15% incidence.
