        Abstract

        The United Kingdom Infantile Spasms Study (UKISS) comparing hormonal treatment against vigabatrin in the management of infantile spasms showed that cessation of spasms was more likely in infants given hormonal treatment.

        We believe this study has changed our practice and the advice we give colleagues across our region regarding the management of infantile spasms. We undertook this audit to see if this was confirmed.
