My son took birth on 24.07.2006 by vaccum delivery, baby resuscitated with ETT and atlast doctor diganosed a severe perinatal asphyxia grade 3. now he is 10 month old still not sitting without support, not holding things properly but try to touch toys, listing, watching, feeling, tasting and making lot of nosies without a porper word even he cant say dad at the age of 10 months. Recently we have his CT scan what it shows am writing down

1.coronal sutures are fused (cranio stenosis)
2.inner CSF spaces are also prominent. Outer CSF spaces mildly    prominent in frontal region.

so i would like to ask this treatment is possible and how much cost will come.

I'm sorry sorry to hear of this.  If the brain is severely injured at birth, there may be so much damage that the brain doesn't grow properly.  The skull grows in response to the growing brain inside.  This may be the reason that the skull is fused early in one of the sutures (The sutures are the areas between the separate skull bones and is the area where the skull grows)  The area where the sutures are fused is an area where you son's brain is not growing normally.

I can't tell you if fixing the skull with surgery would have ANY effect on your son's development.  I doubt that it would.  The comment on the CT scan that the CSF spaces are prominent both inside the brain and also outside the brain also show this problem with the brain not growing properly.

Your answer will have to come from a pediatric neurosurgeon or pediatric neurologist who can look at the images directly.
