Atypical Cerebral Palsy: Edmonton Experience
Basmah Al-Jabri | Helly Goez
Abstract: Cerebral Palsy is a chronic condition affecting body, limb movement and the control of muscle tone and coordination. It is caused by damage to one or more specific areas of the developing brain. The brain damage is not progressive. The diagnosis is based on the history and clinical examination. A crucial point in the history is that the delay is not progressive. In this study, a cohort data of patients previously diagnosed with cerebral palsy was investigated. We found that the presence of atypical features in the clinical presentation, laboratory, and neuroimaging profiles had guided to different diagnoses other than cerebral palsy.
