Thank you for your query.

The MRI findings need not be responsible for the problems that you have enumerated. Your son needs to be assessed both neurologically and behaviourally for management. A detailed history is very important for the assessment.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your son all the best.
