Abstract: Aims: To explore antecedents of cerebral palsy (CP) according to subtype, severity of motor impairment and accompanying impairments (epilepsy and/or cognitive impairments) in relation to neuroimaging patterns. Material and methods: Case control studies were performed in a population-based serie of children with CP born at term (n=309), matched with a control group (n=618). The cases and the matched controls were divided into CP subtype; spastic hemiplegia, spastic diplegia or tetraplegia and dy... more
