Please proceed with your query
Hello doctor...My son is 3months old, and I have query in respect to his head circumference
His Head circumference is 38.5 cm
i am worried for his low HC...
Any history of premature delivery?
No , it was not premature delivery...
at 38 weeks...
Ok but I guess it is normal, 37 to 43 is considered as normal
Any growth and developmental abnormalities other than HC
however, i was going through some internet studies which said, the low HC, means small HC would mean low IQ
no it is not correct, we can not say now he has low IQ
Low IQ depends upon various thing not only HC
His weight and height every thing noraml
better Do not think about it much
Are you there?
Moreover his HC in normal ranges ok
and that can be the reason for his low HC
Yes, CMV can affect the baby
But you need to worry until baby is active and all his para meters are normal
I guess Your baby is not having any abnormalities so far
Does he have any congenital abnormalities?
can i have any test to check this effect..
how i can check congenital abnormalities?
Just follow up with you pediatrician and to know about any developmental abnormalities, hearing loss, you can ask for blood tests to confirm the diagnosis
But most of the times it is aymptomatic
Are you there?
ya..would talk to pediatrician for the same
But need not to worry ok
Just discuss about possibilities pk
Do you have any more queries?
no other queries...
