View George Rogu M.D. Perinatal Encephalopathy Russian Diagnosis, should I worry? 12/14/2005 We were just referred a 7 month old boy that was born at 35-36 weeks. The medical report we received says that the neurologist diagnosed him as having "perinatal lesion of central nervous system." In June and August, the notation "early recovery period" was on the report. In October, the notation was "late recovery period." Is "perinatal lesion of CNS" something that you frequently see? How concerned should we be? Perinatal Encephalopathy - is it something, or is it nothing?
View George Rogu M.D. Readers question on Congenital Hip Dysplasia 12/18/2005 We just received a referral of a 1 year old child to evaluate. The report states that she has "dysplasia of coxofermoral joints". I'm wondering if this is the same as "hip dysplasia" which I understand appears on a lot of referrals.
View George Rogu M.D. Reader's Questions on Children with small Head Size - Microcephaly 1/3/2006 We just received a referral for a 14 month-old Russian girl. I am concerned about her head measurements (microcephaly?) as they are consistently below the 3rd percentile on the CDC charts. Is it easier to make measurement mistakes erring to the small side than to the large side. Perhaps I am making too much of this; but I have read several articles stressing the significance of this condition when it exceeds 2 Standard Deviations (3rd percentile). I have also read that this is not the type of thing that nutritional improvements, etc. will have much effect on after

The orphanage in Taiwan says that the Hemoglobinopties are disorders of blood cell structure and they may occur in many different ethnic groups, such as African, Asian, Mediterranean or Middle Eastern decent.
