Cerebral palsy (CP) is a group of conditions of the brain and nervous system that impairs functions like movement, cognition, sight and possibly hearing. CP is a condition resulting from injury to an infant’s brain before, during or shortly after birth. CP is often associated with: low levels of oxygen in the brain (hypoxia), prematurity, bleeding in the brain, brain infections, head injury, infections in the mother during pregnancy, and severe jaundice. In some cases, these causes could be the result of negligent or improper medical care. Cerebral palsy symptoms may vary in severity as the location and size of the damage to the brain can also vary.
CP can indirectly contribute to osteoporosis, scoliosis, pneumonia, arthritis and bowel obstruction. There is no cure for cerebral palsy. CP is a lifelong disorder that may require long-term care.
