her physiotherapy has been started.tratement for the convulsion is going on.
Please help me to understand which part of brain is injured & what is their function?
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
Unmyelination and hyperintensities mainly signal injury, and ADA studies probably show infarction. This can delay developmental milestones, and affect both motor and speech—the intensity may vary depending on growth and physiotherapy. It may affect IQ as well, hence with age physiotherapy would also need to involve mental exercises.
However, a detailed assessment can only be made by a pediatric neuro-psychiatrist and you must consult one.
Hoe the best for your baby! Take care!
