My niece 12 years is unable to move her body since the age of 2 years. intially she was perfactly alright child till age 2 years, then she started falling easily and the symptoms worsened rapidly and progressively within 5 to 6 months she was bed ridden, I consulted couple of consultants in Lahore Pakistan, there reply was the CEREBRAL PALSY, but as a family physician I never agreed because this is never a presentation of CP,
A strange happening for the last one week is as follows
I started her with antiparkinsonism drug Methyledopa and dopadecarboxylase inhibitor combination as
she can now hold her NECK,
she can now sit from lying position with support of sofa,
this has been a marvellous improvement in my vision.
what else?
