Introduction: The Portuguese Surveillance of Cerebral Palsy at 5 years of age is a national registry. We describe the MRI findings in children with cerebral palsy (CP).
Participants and methods: The Portuguese Surveillance shares definitions, classifications and tools with SCPE. Survivors at five years age both living in Portugal and born 2001-2003, were selected. The predominant MRI pattern was selected.
Results: MRI was available from 367 out of 566 survivors (64.8%). 44.9% of the MRI were done from age 1-24 months. Brain malformation was predominant in 29 (11.2%). White matter lesion was predominant in 92 (35.7%) (81 periventricular leucomalacia). Grey matter lesion was predominant in 58 (22.5%) (26 basal ganglia/thalamus lesions, 17 middle cerebral artery infarctions). It was considered normal in 12 (4,65%).
Conclusion: MRI is still not fully described in children with cerebral palsy.
