Abstract

Hypoxic ischemic insult in early childhood can have a varied clinical presentation depending on the timing and severity of the insult, and magnetic resonance imaging plays a key role in identifying injury patterns. Dyskinetic cerebral palsy is commonly associated with injury to the basal ganglia and thalamus. We report two cases presenting in early childhood with signs and symptoms of dyskinetic cerebral palsy attributed to focal damage to the superior cerebellar vermis secondary to a hypoxic insult in the perinatal period in term infants.
