Im new to the forum and guess this may not be the place for my question but I really would appreciate any information or guidance if possible.
I have an eight year old daughter born with a coloboma (Inferonasal coloboma as far as I know, no definative diagnosis as yet) she developed normally till the age of about 2 years old when she suffered a head injury (a cupboard door fell off its rails onto her) She had a Cat scan at the time and there appeared to be no injuries present other than a concussion.
She is now almost seven years old and appears to have the development level of a four year old in terms of numeracy, literacy as well as general behaviour.
We are currently undergoing a multitude of tests and the latest of which was an MRI which was done to assess any possible neurological deficiencies related to the coloboma one of the doctors post MRI, inadvertantly mentioned that although the brain appeared anatomically correct the left hemisphere appeared underdeveloped (no further elaboration given as I assume she relaised that any diagnosis or explanation should be handled by the referring consultant)
Needless to say I am very worried and I have been browsing to try to find some sort of information related to "underdeveloped left hemisphere" and the closest symptomatically speaking I can find is Brocas Aphasia, however there appears to be little reference to this being caused by trauma as well as the aforementioned Cat scan results after the head trauma which confuse me somewhat, I would infer that and aphasia caused by trauma would be detected by a CAT scan after the event and would probably be discernable on the recent MRI?
does anyone have any idea of what physiological /developmental diagnosis the above could possibly relate to, I know there is not enough information for any definative answer but I just want to get a bit more information so I can ask the right questions when we see my daughters consultant in a couple of months time.
