Can anybody suggest about the brain development
Hi,
My son ,now 6 years old, born with 1.4kg weight ,severe respiratory distress,cyanosis,SaO2 56% & was in ventilation for 28days.
After 1months cranial ultrasound scans showed mild ventricular dilatation but no haemorrage. MRI of brain showed small hyperintense infract like leasion in basal ganglia on left side with dilated ventricles & thin corpus callosum.

Though physical growth of my son is quite normal but he is unable to speak, unable to understand our language & follow instructions & with poor eye contact.His recent EEG showed mild diffuse encephalopathy .His recent CT scan of brain showing minor cerebelar atrophy & significant ventricular dilatation.

Could anybody  please help me to let me know what would be the future of his mental development  ! will he be able to speak & understand our language ? He is having good hearing ablity & vision in only right eye ( as left eye vision lost due to ROP)

Hi!
I am sorry to hear about your son. However, your question can be best answered by a doctor who has been seeing him since childhood. There has been hypoxic brain injury (low oxygen) and this injury is irreversible. However, brain has minimal capacity to make new connections. Also, the right therapy may help him with words if he can process the information. This needs to be checked. Please discuss with his treating neurologist. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
