Abstract: -The purpose of this paper, which was conducted on 175 children with hemiparetic cerebral palsy (H-CP), was to verify the etiological risk period for this disease. Etiological risk factors (ERF) were detected through anamnesis: 23% in the prenatal period, 18% in the perinatal period and 59% of the patients the period was undefined (ERF in the prenatal and perinatal period was 41% and no ERF was 18% of the cases. The computerized tomographic scan (CT) and MRI were performed on all the patients, who were then cl… Show more

“…Great progress has been made in relation to imaging in HCP, only 8% to 24% of the examinations being reported as normal 2,4 of positive findings has been reported in the literature [5][6][7][8][9] . For parents seeking a cause for their child's disability, a radiological diagnosis is now possible in the majority of cases.…”

“…For parents seeking a cause for their child's disability, a radiological diagnosis is now possible in the majority of cases. Recent studies, based on neuroimaging findings, provide objective information, elucidating and classifying the etiology of CP more clearly 2,10 . The pattern of brain injury of patients with CP is closely related to the gestational age of occurrence.…”
