Cystic Periventricular Leukomalacia Print E-mail

Dr. Kennedy Cystic periventricular leukomalacia involves softening of the white matter near the ventricles of the brain resulting in abnormal cysts. Cystic periventricular leukomalacia is a major problem in very premature infants. Treating the mother with a cortisone-like drug before the premature birth has been discovered to protect the baby's brain from this complication. Probably a better preventive, in this writer's esimation, would be regular doses of DHA and B complex vitamins. However, this needs study and should not be taken as medical advice at this time.
