Mild cerebral palsy - Online Doctor Chats
User : Hello
Doctor : hi
My son just had a brain ultrasound today (at 11 months) which found a cavitation in the deep right hemisphere. He has marked muscle weakness in his left arm, and is believed to have cerebral palsy. I was just wondering if there was any information that you can provide me on the condition.
how can i help u
please proceed with your query
He is on schedule with everything except motor skills, which are at 9 1/2 months.
I believe that he must have mild cerebral palsy, as it only affects his left arm, but I don't know much about the condition.
Again, any information that you can provide on the subject will be helpful.
The only obvious symptom that he's displayed is the left arm weakness.
He does open the hand at times and will use it on occasion, but he is right hand dominant (I am told that infants do not develop hand dominancy until 1-2 years).
