my question is what the above diogonisis means in a lay mans term. what treatment should be undertaken and where in India can i take my son for treatment. Please help
Encephalomalacia is softening of the brain. The child develops symptoms based on which part fo the brain is involved. Encephalomalacia is usually the result of trauma or hemorrhage. AIIMS (All India Institute of Medical Sciences) New Delhi will be a good place for referral.
