Abstract

The incidence of cerebral palsy is 1 per 1,000, whereas the proportion caused by perinatal asphyxia is only 8% to 10%. The purpose of this article is to review the relationship between asphyxia and cerebral palsy. Only a minority of cases, those involving severe pathological fetal academia, are consistently associated with neonatal encephalopathy and an increased risk of cerebral palsy.
