Herbal Treatment For Partial Agenesis Of Corpus Callosum
Partial agenesis: A fetal MRI can confirm what we see on ultrasound and may be helpful in prediction. Chromosomal analysis, usually by amniocentesis, is also important.

My daughter is 21 mos old but was born at 24 weeks of pregancey she had an MRI done the other day and said that her corpus callosum appears slightly sm?
Normal variation: A major problem with MRI is that it often shows useless information. Severe premature babies can have delayed myelination that is of no clinical significance. I would ignore the MRI and just enjoy how well she is trying to recover from a very early birth. I do not approve of using the MRI to try to predict outcome. ...Read more

I went to a pharmacy to get treated of gonorrhea and the pharmacist directed me to go for herbal treatment rather. That thr is no good drugs for it?
In the summer of 2012, the CDC updated the guidelines again — recommending that all gonorrhea cases be treated with injectable, rather than oral, antibiotics.
If a pharmacist sent you to the herbal section rather than referring you to be tested by a physician or clinic, then they ought to be reported. That is horrifying to me. I do hope you misunderstood. ...Read more
