Once the specialist performs a physical examination and analyzes the family medical history, they will measure the baby’s head to compare it with a growth chart, making timely follow-ups.
You may also decide to measure the parent’s head to establish if it is due to a family trait. If your child has been developmentally impaired, the doctor will most likely order blood, urine, and genetic tests, as well as imaging studies such as MRI and CT scans, in order to establish the cause of the delay.
If your child suffers from craniosynostosis, they will perform surgery to correct the anomaly, but in other cases, there is no therapy that solves the problems caused by microcephaly, so the treatment will focus on achieving control of the condition through various support programs, such as speech and occupational therapy, as well as physiotherapy, which will seek to give the child a better quality of life.
If there are convulsive or hyperactive episodes, they can be treated with different drugs.
At the Neurological Center, a select group of highly trained and certified doctors in the various neurological specialties are ready to assist you with the quality and warmth that characterizes us.
