Pediatric Disease: Cerebral Palsy

Meta Description: Cerebral palsy is one of the most common and costly chronic disorder, it affects up to 0.02% of all live births, and it occurs in all races. Cerebral palsy is defined as a group of non-progressive permanent disorders of movement and posture that occur following damage to the developing fetal or infant brain. It is often accompanied by other neuro developmental disorders.

Cerebral palsy is a very common neurological disorder and frequently seen at neurology clinics. The etiology of CP is not well understood, and brain lesions are thought to be associated with prenatal, perinatal, or postnatal events of varying causes. Risk factors for CP are multifactorial and can include preterm birth, multiple gestation, intrauterine growth restriction, male sex, low Apgar scores, intrauterine infections, maternal thyroid abnormalities, prenatal strokes, birth asphyxia, maternal methyl mercury exposure, and maternal iodine deficiency. Consanguinity of all its degrees was found in 53.3% of our children but this is similar to the normal prevalence.
