Brief Answer:
Structural defect along with bleeding

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for using the Ask a Doctor service. I have checked the attached report. It indicates that there was a problem with the neuronal migration that occurs in the brain during foetal period. It is due to this reason that the connection between the two sides of the brain (a structure called corpus callosum) is ill formed, thus predisposing the child to recurrent seizures. Due to certain other factors like prematurity and stress around the time of delivery, there was a bleeding I. the brain and the consequences of it are evident in the MRI.

Brief Answer:
Early intervention would ensure good outcomes

Detailed Answer:
It is not your fault. Sometimes things do not turn up right. You had no control over this development and I would insist you not to blame yourself. She would need monitoring of her developmental progress and might require various forms of supports/therapies to assist her with her development. With early detection and early intervention disabilities can be avoided.
