Two weeks in operation, the clinic of the State Institute of the Brain has served 111 patients, including children and adults. For them, the first query is step closer to achieving the expected surgery.

This is the case of little Maria Clara Araújo de Andrade, age 9, who is awaiting surgery since he was diagnosed with intractable epilepsy caused by cortical dysplasia, at 4 months of life. The biggest dream Housewife Eliane Vieira de Andrade is the daughter have a normal life like any other child.

Maria Clara is our first child. Already nine years waiting for this surgery. My biggest dream is that my daughter can have a life. The special son teaches to appreciate the small gestures, like a caress, when it happens is a party Eliane said.

It is estimated that there is 1.8000000 to 3.6000000 epileptics in Brazil. The cortical dysplasia is a major cause of childhood epilepsy. It is considered a brain disorder resulting from abnormal development of neurons in the cerebral cortex in the first trimester of pregnancy, which manifests with early seizures early in life.

The case of Maria Clara is typical of surgical indication, and thankfully now we can operate it with the marvelous structure of the State Institute of Brain. She had seizures daily, and resistant to drugs that lead to falls and repeated facial trauma. We believe there is a prospect of great improvement after the surgery said the coordinator of the Center for Epilepsy Hospital, Eduardo Faveret.
