Common Questions and Answers about Stroke in infancy

stroke

Avatar n tn There are two peaks of developing a stroke infancy and old age. It is a good sign that your baby is not exhibiting any symptoms of stroke. Infant brains are very plastic and learn to compensate for the loss fairly easily. However you need to watch your child closely for any symptoms like using one side of the body or one limb more than the other. http://www.ucsfhealth.org/common/pubs/childrensnews/winter2005/stroke/index.html http://www.lifeclinic.com/fullpage.aspx?
Avatar f tn I was positively diagnosed in 2001, it took 4+ years due to overlapping symstems. My servere vertigo was always put off to my sinus/ear problems which I had since infancy. So I'm looking at CCSVI as a possible overlapping system. My primary doc ordered the MRA test for me (my nero wanted me to go into a study). They found inflamation of the viens. So is this being caused by the MS or am I on the verge of heart disease? Either way it is something that has to be addressed.
Avatar m tn While aneurysm surgeries are generally successful, aneurysm in infancy are generally uncommon. Hence there is not enough data to make a future prediction. The prognosis varies from child to child and depends on whether the child has infection or hemorrhage after surgery. However, infants fare better than adults after aneurysm surgeries provided there are no other malformations. There have been cases of children leading a normal lifespan with no or minimal handicap.
Avatar n tn 22yo male with history of eczema since infancy (also asthma/allergies). Historically treated with hydroxyzine and topical steroid cream. One year ago, skin condition worsened. Experienced "sunburn" like appearance to face with severe itching to scalp and face. the usual bleeding and large, painful lymph nodes to scalp and neck. Treated with several rounds of oral steroids and antibiotics. No relief presently with maximum dose of hydroxyzine.
Avatar m tn If it seems like there are a lot of chronics at this board I would say that over 90% of us here were infected in infancy or early childhood when the rate of clearance is about 10% or less. If you were infected as an adult, which I think we can assume (you're not Asian, right?), then you will probably clear the Hep B and even if you don't, its a very slow acting virus. I know a CHB woman in her 90s who is still healthy...
Avatar f tn Hi, A hemangioma of infancy is a benign tumor of endothelial cells. They are the most common tumor in infancy and are connected to the circulatory system and filled with blood. In most cases, hemangiomas will disappear over time, leaving minimal or no visible marks. Talk to you doctor about this on your next follow-up for proper evaluation. Medical treatment may be done but in majority of cases, they will resolve on their own. Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar m tn Well, maybe I can help. I am 48 years old. Obviously when I was born, ultrasounds were virtually unheard of in obstetrics...or at least around my small town. I was 12 lbs and 5 oz. when I was born. OB/GYN did not perform a C-Section. As a result, I got hung during delivery. Doctor had to break my arm to deliver me. If they had not, my mom and I would have died. They bandaged/casted the wrong arm. I was sent home a week later without any reduction in my right arm.
Avatar n tn I'm a physician, with an 11 month old male infant. In the last 4-6 weeks I have noticed, about once daily, a shrug of his shoulder. It generally happens while he is sitting at his high chair (could be excitement ?) and it is unilateral --always the Left Shoulder. It looks like a 'shrug' but I'm calling it a myoclonic movement.
Avatar f tn My almost six-year-old daughter has been chewing almost anything since infancy (we adopted her when she was 7 months). She has always bitten her finger and toe nails (we've never clipped them), and she also chews her hair, clothes, jewelry, toys, stuffed animals, found objects, broken glass, etc. She does not tend to swallow what she chews. We do not scold her when she chews, but we do ask her to chew something safe if she picks up something unsafe (e.g.
Avatar m tn All I can tell you is, I was born w/out a thyroid gland (the only one in all of my family trees) to have this problem. My children were born healthy and all their organs in place, including working thyroids. I don't think hypo or hyper thyroid is inherited. If a child is born with or in early stages of infancy begin to show symptoms of thyroid issues (Downe's syndrome/Mongoloid..
Avatar f tn What I find puzzling is that her sleep problems were already there in infancy. She did not sleep excessively at first -- just very erratically, in short pieces of time. Even at 6 months old I could put her on her back and she would suddenly be asleep for 5-15 minutes (in the middle of an activity). 1- Can a BABY have narcolepsy?
Avatar m tn Could it be a stroke? Those are the symptoms as far as I am aware? You should see the doctor to be safe.
Avatar f tn My daughter had a stroke in her thalamus at age 17 and is still having headaches 2 years later... every day... any ideas for treatment or diagnosis??? Her doctor says that it is migraines and the two are not related. It seems like too much of a coincidence to me. Can a stroke cause persistent headaches and what is the treatment????

Avatar m tn It is possible to correct sever deformity in infancy. The same procedures are not possible in an adult.
Avatar n tn Reason of stroke was blood clotting in brain. He is able to hear and understand everything; he remembers everything but can’t write anything, he is able to read a little as well. I just wanted to know if this pain is normal or is there anything I should be worried about.
Avatar f tn Strokes can cause many clinical findings including weakness, numbness, changes in cognition, etc, depending on the location of the stroke. An MRI of the brain is a very useful modality to identify strokes. If indeed there was a structural lesion (i.e., stroke), it should be seen on the MRI. However, MRIs are only so specific and sensitive for detecting strokes. I agree your son should continue following up with the neurologist. Neuroimaging would be useful.

Avatar f tn Convertibles save you money by fitting from birth to about 65 pounds. It works forward for when they get older but back facing for infancy.
Avatar f tn I can't answer your question without more information: what is your age? What is your glasses prescription? What is you vision in each eye with the glasses on? Post that and I can give a pretty good answer.
Avatar f tn Hi, 25 yo female. Chronic "flares" of knee pain since infancy. No methods of therapy or NSAIDS seems to help. No diagnosis. i just did this x ray. It looks like narrowing of the patellafemoral space. Is this correct? Thank you for any advice.
Avatar m tn I am a 73-year-old female, generally in very good health with low risk factors for stroke or heart disease. Past hypertension and hyperlipidemia have been well-controlled with medication for more than ten years. In April 2011 my total cholesterol was 147; LDL 84; TG 85; HDL 46. Last week I suffered a cryptogenic stroke of the left temporal cortex that presented with garbled speech and difficulty drinking from a cup. (Both symptoms have since resolved completely.
