Seizures and IP

When my daughter was a few days old she started having seizures, they gave her an MRI and found blood clots in her brain. The doctors put her on blood thinner and seizure medicine. A week later she develop a rash and blisters, the dermatologist diagnosed her with IP. Are the blood clots in her brain related to the IP? Will she have a blood clot disorder, and will they continue to come back? Where are the seizures coming from, the blood clots or the IP? Will she always have seizures? I have asked these questions to her doctors and they have no answers, they keep telling me I have to wait and see what happens. Please if anyone has any information I would be very grateful.

One more thing....
My daughter has seen the eye doctor and he told me she has abnormal blood vessels. He said we have to do a follow up to see if they have changed. From my research I have found there is a connection with the eyes and the brain. How will I know what her mental capacity will be in the future?

Thank you in advance
Laylas Mom

I am the Executive director of the IP foundation.  I will try to answer some of your questions.

It is not unusual for a baby with IP to have seizures, and kyou should consult a Pediatric Neurologist.  As for the eyes it is also not unusual for there to be eye problems.  For this you should visit a Pediatric Ophthalmologist.  A description of how to examine the keys of a baby born with IP is on the web site.  www.ipif.org.  How long any of these symptoms will last is very difficult to determine.  Has your daughter had a genetic test to confirm the diagnosis?  Neurological problems are also a possibility with IP, but first confirm that she does have IP.  IF you wish contact me firectly at ***@****.
