Study: Cerebral Palsy Prevalence and Severity Drops in Norway

According to a study out of the European Journal of Paediatric Neurology, the prevalence of cerebral palsy and the severity of cerebral palsy cases in Norway has dropped noticeably in the past twenty years. Data from the study indicates a drop in cerebral palsy prevalence from 2.62 per 1,000 Norwegian births in 1999 to 1.89 per 1,000 in 2010. Rates of quadriplegic cerebral palsy — the most severe form of the condition — decreased from 2007 onward, while rates of bilateral spastic cerebral palsy — the most common form of cerebral palsy — fell significantly from 1999 to 2010. Researchers suggest that better obstetric and neonatal care is a primary cause of the drop.
