Stem cell treatment is yes definetly a promising treatment option in the modern medicine and yet to be established in certain diseases and giving good results in some disorders. In your child aspect better to consult your neurologist and discuss these aspects whether there is any scope for this treatment modality. In Partial agenesis of Corpus Callosum the refractory seizures and mental retardation are associated features and anticonvulsant drugs are required and some times multiple drugd are required to control seizures.
