What is Periventricular Leukomalacia?
I am not sure if my spelling is correct, but could you explain to me what Periventricular Loukamalasia is and how it affects infants? I have a 4 month old grandchild that has been diagnosed with it. He can`t hold his head up nor does he attempt to roll over or anything infants his age do.
Thank you for your interest, however your question does not fall within the scope of this topic area or that of any other current NetWellness expert.
The correct spelling of the condition you listed is periventricular leukomalacia. The ADAM health encyclopedia entry listed below contains some information about the condition.
