  • Question: My 10-month-old daughter has Infantile Spasms. She has had 3 MRIs and each one shown a small cyst, with each MRI it has grown to now 1 cm in size. It is also located next/above the hippocampus. Should she be seen by a neurosurgeon? She has seizures daily.
  • Answer:05/13/2007
    There are several factors in this decision. Is she under the care of a pediatric neurologist? Are you getting good information form him/her? Are there other issues in her normal development that are lagging? Does the neurologist think this is a 'surgical' lesion? Are you at a major medical center? See, especially Chapters 5,6,7 on getting appropriate specialists.
