Etiology and Pathogenesis of Cerebral Palsy in Children (a New Look at an Old Problem) (Lecture)

S.K. Yevtushenko

Abstract


The lecture is intended for physicians — pediatric neurologists studying on thematic and pre-certification courses, as well as for other doctors working in medical and nonmedical rehabilitation pediatric centers. In this lecture the modern point of view to the etiology and pathogenesis of cerebral palsy as syndromic (non-progressive) disease, but not as well-established nosological form is presented. Based on current clinical and instrumental studies, there has been defined a new interpretation of this neurological pathology: «Cerebral palsy — arised (mainly non-progressive) disorders of movements and cognitive dysfunction in the immature or abnormally developing child’s brain on the background of immunogenetic predisposition».
