690874 tn?1263050440 From what you describe, your daughter might have slight hemiplegia (type of CP which affects only one side of the body). This type of CP is often caused by a stroke and many of the infants who have it were born full-term. CP is not a very descriptive term. What's more important is what in particular is wrong with the brain and what physical (and sometimes cognitive) effects it has.
547196 tn?1214630106 Hi, Cerebral palsy is caused by an injury to the brain before, during, or shortly after birth. In many cases, no one knows for sure what caused the brain injury or what may have been done to prevent the injury. A large number of factors which can injure the developing brain may produce cerebral palsy.

Avatar m tn We put together an article explaining the many physical and mental issues surrounding Athetoid Cerebral Palsy. The effects of Athetoid CP injuries depend on the location and severity of the damage. Diagnosis at an early age is problematic as motor skills are still developing.

Avatar n tn Some of the best reading comes from the NINDS (National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke) and the Cerebral Palsy Foundation. The Rusk Institute in New York is probably one of the best medical centers for spasticity. There's also one in Chicago, but I forget its name. Good luck with your daughter's treatment.....j c P.S.

Avatar m tn I am interested in knowing what actually happens with-in the brain at the time of injury that causes Cerebral Palsy when there is a low to no oxygen level in the brain for any length of time. How does the cerebrum change? What changes occur in the cerebrum that causes CP? How is the cerebrum supposed to normally work? How does the cerebrum actually work after the injury?
Avatar f tn No, dental abscess does not predispose infants to develop cerebral palsy. Most cases of cerebral palsy are believed to be caused by problems that occur before the baby is born (e.g. maternal illnesses or congenital abnormalities), although some cases have been linked to brain injuries or infections during infancy (e.g. meningitis or birth trauma). To learn more about the risks of cerebral palsy, consult your doctor. Hope this helps.
