PURPOSE: To explore factors contributing to variability in cognitive functioning in children with cerebral palsy (CP). METHOD: A geographical cohort of 70 children with CP was assessed with tests of language comprehension, visual-spatial reasoning, attention, working memory, memory, and executive functioning. Mean age was 9;9 years (range 5;1-17;7), 54.3% were girls, and 50.0% had hemiplegic, 25.7% diplegic, 12.9% quadriplegic, and 11.4% dyskinetic CP. For the participants with severe motor impairments, assessments were adapted for gaze pointing...

INTRODUCTION: Cerebral palsy (CP) is the most common significant motor impairment in childhood. CP is defined as a primary disorder of posture and movement; however, intellectual impairment is prevalent in children with CP. The purpose of this study was to examine the intelligence level associated with gross motor function and hand function, type of CP, the presence of comorbid disorders such as epilepsy, and other factors. METHODS: In total, 107 children with CP were included...

AIM: To identify and systematically review the psychometric properties and clinical utility of dystonia and choreoathetosis scales reported for children with cerebral palsy (CP). METHOD: Six electronic databases were searched for dystonia and choreoathetosis scales with original psychometric data for children with CP aged 0 to 18 years. RESULTS: Thirty-four papers met the inclusion criteria, which contained six scales purported to measure dystonia and/or choreoathetosis in children with CP: the Burke-Fahn-Marsden Dystonia Rating Scale; Barry-Albright Dystonia Scale; Unified Dystonia Rating Scale; Movement Disorder-Childhood Rating Scale; Movement Disorder-Childhood Rating Scale 0-3 Years; and the Dyskinesia Impairment Scale...

The multidisciplinary team (MDT) approach illustrates how motor classification systems, assessments and outcome measures currently available have been applied to a national cohort of children and young people with dystonia and other hyperkinetic movement disorders (HMD) particularly with a focus on dyskinetic cerebral palsy (CP). The paper is divided in 3 sections. Firstly, we describe the service model adopted by the Complex Motor Disorders Service (CMDS) at Evelina London Children's Hospital and King's College Hospital (ELCH-KCH) for deep brain stimulation...

REVIEW
Anne Koy, Lars Timmermann
Cerebral palsy (CP) is the most common cause for acquired dystonia in childhood. Pharmacological treatment is often unsatisfactory and side effects are frequently dose-limiting. Data on outcome of DBS in paediatric patients with dyskinetic CP is very limited and heterogeneous. Reasons for the variability in responses are not entirely known yet. Interestingly, some CP-patients seem to improve subjectively on pallidal stimulation but without measurable changes in impairment scales. Besides dystonia scales, the use of sensitive age-dependent assessments tools is therefore reasonable to capture the full effect...

Standard intelligence scales require both verbal and manipulative responses, making it difficult to use in cerebral palsy and leading to underestimate their actual performance. This study aims to compare three intelligence tests suitable for the heterogeneity of cerebral palsy in order to identify which one(s) could be more appropriate to use. Forty-four subjects with bilateral dyskinetic cerebral palsy (26 male, mean age 23 years) conducted the Raven's Coloured Progressive Matrices (RCPM), the Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test-3rd (PPVT-III) and the Wechsler Nonverbal Scale of Ability (WNV)...

Levetiracetam (LEV) efficacy in the treatment of chorea in Huntington disease, paroxysmal nonkinesigenic dyskinesia, paroxysmal kinesigenic choreoathetosis, and dyskinetic cerebral palsy was reported in some studies. We described a case of a child with Sydenham chorea treated with LEV. A 7.5-year-old male patient presented with chorea, orofacial dyskinesia, speech impairment, and irritability. Echocardiographic examination revealed mitral insufficiency. Sydenham chorea was diagnosed after excluding other diseases causing chorea...

AIM: The life expectancy of individuals with cerebral palsy (CP) is often reduced compared with the general population. Long-term survival with CP is rarely reported. The aim of this study was to investigate survival and the causes of death in relation to CP type and motor and accompanying impairments documented in the CP register of western Sweden over five decades. METHOD: All individuals born between 1959 and 2002 were included in the study. CP was classified according to Hagberg and the Surveillance of Cerebral Palsy in Europe (SCPE)...

For children with severe cerebral palsy (CP), social and emotional interactions can be significantly limited due to impaired speech motor function. However, if it is possible to extract continuous voluntary control signals from the electromyograph (EMG) of limb muscles, then EMG may be used to drive the synthesis of intelligible speech with controllable speed, intonation and articulation. We report an important first step: the feasibility of controlling a vowel synthesizer using non-speech muscles. A classic formant-based speech synthesizer is adapted to allow the lowest two formants to be controlled by surface EMG from skeletal muscles...

REVIEW

Advances in the care of neonatal hyperbilirubinemia have led to a decreased incidence of kernicterus. However, neonatal exposure to high levels of bilirubin continues to cause severe motor symptoms and cerebral palsy (CP). Exposure to moderate levels of unconjugated bilirubin may also cause damage to the developing central nervous system, specifically the basal ganglia and cerebellum. Brain lesions identified using magnetic resonance imaging following extreme hyperbilirubinemia have been linked to dyskinetic CP...

Adults with cerebral palsy (CP) are known to have low bone mass with an increased risk of fragility fracture. CP is classified into two major types: spastic (pyramidal) and dyskinetic (extrapyramidal). Spastic CP is the most common and is characterized by muscle hypertonicity and impaired neuromuscular control. By contrast, dyskinetic CP is characterized by mixed muscle tone with involuntary movements. The aim of this study was to elucidate the relationship between bone metabolism and subtype of CP. Fifty-eight adults with CP (aged 18 to 49years, mean age 33...

An ongoing challenge in children presenting with motor delay/impairment early in life is to identify neurogenetic disorders with a clinical phenotype, which can be misdiagnosed as cerebral palsy (CP). To help distinguish patients in these two groups, conventional magnetic resonance imaging of the brain has been of great benefit in "unmasking" many of these genetic etiologies and has provided important clues to differential diagnosis in others. Recent advances in molecular genetics such as chromosomal microarray and next-generation sequencing have further revolutionized the understanding of etiology by more precisely classifying these disorders with a molecular cause...

BACKGROUND: Comorbidities including hearing impairment occur commonly in individuals with cerebral palsy (CP). METHODS: Hearing impairment was assessed in a registry-derived population-based sample of children with CP. RESULTS: Hearing impairment was documented in 12.7% (27 of 212) with less than a quarter of these (or 2.7% overall [6 of 212]) having a severe hearing loss of greater than 70 dB bi-aurally. Those with severe hearing impairment were more likely to be nonambulatory (Gross Motor Function Classification System IV/V; 100% versus 34...
