Some children with deletion 22q11.2 syndrome (DiGeorge syndrome) experience night terrors. We recommend that you speak with the child's pediatrician to discuss available treatment options.

The family may also benefit from meeting with a clinical geneticist who can review the natural history of deletion 22q11.2 syndrome. A medical geneticist can be found at the American College of Medical Genetics website.
