Abstract

Twenty-two children (15 girls, 7 boys) with postnatal infectious cerebral palsy were reviewed at an average age of 8 years. Orthopaedic deformities were noted in 82% of all children and involved the upper extremity (41%), spine (45%), hips (68%), knees (32%), and feet and ankles (55%). Both typical and atypical cerebral palsy deformities were noted, often severe. Surgical correction of deformities achieved 77% satisfactory results. Bony procedures did better than soft tissue procedures, especially around the hip.
