Calcium Deposits

My daughter is 2 and a half. She was born with Cerebral Palsy and blind. They said she has calcium deposits on her brain. They do not know what has caused it. Every test has came back negative and genetics has been negative too. What would be something to cause this?

So, there ARE medical reasons calcium deposits can happen on the brain.  From little tumors, to parasites, to future aneurisms.  That tests have come back negative is great.  But I agree that I would want more answers.  How are your doctors in terms of care they give your daughter?  She's had a long journey during her young life and I'm sure it is really hard on you as her parent!!  Hugs to you.  
Thank you for that info..They havre done all infections and disease all testings they have done has been neg. They have no answer to give except they dont know.  All of my other children are fine. The only difference with her was they struggled to get her out and her oxygen at birth was 43. Thats all i know of that was different

It must be frustrating to know the calcium deposits are there with no answers as to why.  Sigh.  Are they telling you to watch them?  I had what was a minor (comparatively) traumatic birth with my first born.  He was way past due by 10 days and I had latent phase labor with no idea that was going on (in that birth was stalled for three days and I just suffered in misery).  It's all kind of a blur now.  Anyway, he has a developmental delay called sensory integration disorder.  It's challenging to be a parent but even more so with kiddos with challenges.  Do you have a support group of people in your life?
No she just gets yearly check ups. I have her in 8 therapies weekly. No i am a single mother that tries to research on my own. Thank you for your help!! Im sorry to hear about yours it is rough but a blessing
Yes, it can be rough.  You have other kids too?  We have a child behavior forum I am on a lot and there is a children with special needs forum.  It's good to have people to talk to about things!
