Can a 2 year old try Rituxan?

Our 2 year old is doing ok on ivig but his neck has never returned to the strength is was a few months ago. An MRI last month showed enhanced neck roots. We are getting ivig every 2 weeks.
I’m just looking for another treatment. I like the ivig but don’t know when the neck is going to get strong again. If it would, he’d be walking.

Rituxan is given in IV from also. If the IVIG is working why not stay with it.
I would suggest you look on the internet about the not so nice side affects of Rituxan, They are not very pleasant, especially for a 2 year old.
It’s going to take time for his neck to strengthen, Don’t think Rituxan can do that for him.
