The frequent threat factors are, multiple pregnancy, prematurity, small-for-gestational age and infections of the maternal genitourinary. The causal pathways, classification of cerebral palsy and prognostication can play a role in development to prevent the cerebral palsy and arrangement of health services to assemble the desires of the affected infants with disease.
