Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan of a 16-month-old boy who was born at term but had an anoxic event at delivery. Examination findings are consistent with a spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy with asymmetry (more prominent right-sided deficits). Cystic encephalomalacia in the left temporal and parietal regions, delayed myelination, decreased white matter volume, and enlarged ventricles can be seen. These findings are most likely the sequelae of a neonatal insult (eg, periventricular leukomalacia with a superimposed, left-sided cerebral infarct).
