Hi
This is suggestive of mild cerebral atrophy and mildly decreased brain volume and looking like resulted from hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy occurred around perinatal period. Levipil is an anticonvulsant drug and usually prescribed in this children with seizures and you have to continue this drug as advised by your doctor. Multidisciplinary team approach is the mainstay for the overall management of your child and physiotherapy will improve the motor system of the child. So consult neurodevelopmental centre so that all these facilities will be available.
