Hi, Moderate brain atrophy is a general term. There are many conditions which have this as a part of the other conditions ,like many syndromes,chromosomal anomalies,etc. Why was it done,in the first place?
The brain grows in the first 18 months and now it is too early to predict anything.
I need more details .
Wish him all the best.
Good luck
God bless Dr uma
