I have a friend whose baby was diagnosed with isolated cerebral dysgenesis. Could a lack of oxygen during delivery be the cause of this? Would need the advice of a medical expert or someone with knowledge of a similar case.

  • I have a friend whose baby was diagnosed with isolated cerebral dysgenesis. Could a lack of oxygen during delivery be the cause of this? Would need the advice of a medical expert or someone with knowledge of a similar case."Dysgenesis" refers to abnormal formation- which occurs during fetal formation during pregnancy, and not during delivery. Lack of oxygen can cause other issues, but not an anatomical abnormality.
