Hi.

Cerebral atrophy is not a disease per se. It is a non-specific sign and is associated with many types of diseases including Alzheimer's disease, senile dementia, cerebral palsy, stroke, Huntington's disease, traumatic brain injury, mitochondrial encephalomyelopathies, some brain infections, leukodystrophies, multiple sclerosis, and even epilepsy.

Treatment would depend on the underlying condition causing the atrophy. The progression of the atrophy would be dependent of what the underlying condition is and how effective the treatment has been.

You should consult your neurologist to explain in more detail this condition.
