Development of cerebral palsy after ultrasonographic detection of periventricular cysts in the newborn


Developmental Medicine & Child Neurology 27(6): 800-806
Development of cerebral palsy after ultrasonographic detection of periventricular cysts in the newborn
Cysts in the periventricular region of the brain were demonstrated by ultrasound in eight of 102 preterm infants (birthweight < 1501 g or < 34 weeks gestation) during a 14-month period. All eight babies survived, but developed serious neurological problems: five had spastic quadriplegia and three had spastic diplegia. Six had impaired vision and six had delayed speech development, but there was no evidence of impaired hearing. The cysts probably represent the infarcted lesions of periventricular leukomalacia.
