Abstract
Brain computed tomography (CT) is a useful tool for evaluating the pathologic findings in the brains of children with neurologic abnormalities. Brain CT investigation and the Münchner Funtionelle Entwicklungs Diagnostik (MFED) developmental assessment was performed in 88 patients with spastic cerebral palsy. The incidence of abnormal brain CT findings in patients with spastic cerebral palsy was 69.3%. The group with pathologic CT findings had a greater possibility of having developmental delay than the group with normal CT findings (p < 0.05). However, there was no significant relationship between the specific MFED categories and the types of brain CT abnormalities. Pathological CT findings could offer important prognostic information indicating a higher risk concerning the grade of developmental delay.
