Case: Child's cerebral palsy is ascribed to decision against cesarean delivery


Would the child's brain injury have been prevented if the physician had performed a cesarean delivery? Or was it a result of genetic or metabolic causes?

At 8 months she began to show signs of developmental delay; cerebral palsy (CP) was subsequently diagnosed. The child has used a wheelchair since she was 2 and does not have normal use of her limbs. She has been diagnosed with spastic quadriplegia with mild mental retardation. Although she graduated from high school and attends outpatient programs, she is dependent on caregivers for hygiene and feeding.
