Retrospective Descriptive Study of Cerebral Palsy in Nepal
Thapa, Ritesh
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v46 n7 p2285-2291 Jul 2016
There is very little data pertaining to cerebral palsy (CP) from Nepal. In this retrospective study it was observed that dyskinetic CP was seen in 29% and the sex ratio of males to females was two in the study population of children with CP. Both of these are much higher than data from developed countries. Hence, further randomized cross-sectional community based study is recommended to enquire into this pattern. Data regarding early identification was encouraging as majority of the cases (56%) were diagnosed before 4 years of age. There is a stark necessity of early screening and rehabilitation program with provision for follow-up for the affected children, which must also be accessible to the disadvantaged and marginalized groups in Nepal.
