Last Saturday 10th February, we were invited to participate to the XII Annual Meeting of the Spanish Alternating Hemiplegia Syndrome Association, that was held at Hospital Sant Joan de Déu in Esplugues de Llobregat. During the meeting, we could explain how to perform the transition process from childhood to adulthood in this particular disease. At the moment, only 23 cases of this disorder have been confirmed in Spain. Thanks to the improvement in medical management and follow-up by the pediatric neurologists, these patients may reach adulthood, and, at that time, they should be transferred to reference centers in rare neurological diseases, with a well-established transition program.
