Microcephaly

San Diego Birth Injury Lawyer

Microcephaly is a neurodevelopmental disorder in which the brain does not grow or develop fully.  Individuals with microcephaly generally possess a smaller head circumference compared to others in their age range (respective to gender).  Microcephaly often results in a reduced life expectancy and limited brain function, and while it is sometimes a congenital condition caused by genetic abnormalities, it can also be caused by brain injuries sustained during or shortly after the birth process.  A traumatic birth injury can lead to lifelong complications due to microcephaly.  If you have a child with microcephaly related to a birth injury caused by medical malpractice, you will want to contact a San Diego medical malpractice lawyer immediately to begin exploring your legal options.  

Children with microcephaly often suffer the following symptoms:

  • Mental Retardation
  • Seizures
  • Hyperactivity
  • Diminished motor function
  • Below average weight and body size
