Contributing factors in cerebral palsy cases

A Massachusetts family dealing with cerebral palsy could experience a wide range of medical challenges through the life of a child born with the condition. The prevailing belief is that CP occurs because of a child being deprived of oxygen during birth. While this can be a contributing factor, this is not always the case. In fact, scientists are now finding that this is representative of very few instances of the condition.

CP is considered congenital if it occurs before or during birth. Cases can also occur after birth, in which case they are considered to be acquired. In congenital CP, genetic factors can contribute to some cases. Other cases may be related to medical issues affecting a mother during her pregnancy. An infection can cause inflammation that will affect a developing baby's brain. A buildup of bilirubin can also affect a child's brain. Chronic conditions faced by a mother could play a role in CP.
