Abstract

For the 9 to 16 of children with cerebral palsy (CP) who have normal brain imaging, further testing for metabolic and/or genetic conditions has been recommended. This study aimed to identify a cohort of children with CP with normal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), clinically review and describe the cases, and assess the value to testing for inherited metabolic disorders in these children.
