31month boy not talkin morethan 10 sng word,normal hearin.Assesment result:Severe expressive delay no autism.Born with vacum does it damage brain part?
Unrelated to vacuum: Generally, using vacuum to help deliver a baby's head is not related to problems the child has in development or brain function. Even with today's knowledge and technology, many cases of childhood brain problems still have unknown causes (that we may figure out in the next 20-50 years). Meanwhile, keep playing with and talking with the child, do all checkups & vaccines, and just hope for the best. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

6momthold babyboy creeping differently than others.does it has ny link to hormonal prob.he has nonpalp undes.testis.kareotype shows male.
Creeping/crawling: Creeping and crawling doesn't generally develop until closer to 9 months of age. The medical issues you have mentioned does put your baby at a little higher risk for developmental delay, but it is too early to judge his creep/crawl skills. At 6 months, babies usually roll both directions, sit briefly unsupported, pass objects from one hand to the other, babble, and hold a cup or bottle. ...Read more
My son has cerebral palsy, autism, mental retardation, catatonic schizophrenia, seizures, & no lower left lope of brain what is his life expectancy?
Who knows!: So sorry about your son. All of his conditions you could think might cause a shorter life span for all sorts of reasons, but with good care one never knows. Accidents, poor nutrition ( because he doesn't eat well), progressive brain deterioration if repeated seizures, infections, general stress with its harmful physical effects, all could contribute to premature death. Best of luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Bilateral face itch (forehead, nose, nostrils, eyebrows, cheeks). Brain MRI= no compression of V nerve, no lesions, no MS. It's my anxiety related?
I'm mystified: I can't imagine why on earth someone would get a brain MRI looking for a cause of itching. CN nerve compression may cause numbness, weakness (of muscles of mastication) or pain, but never itching. Ditto MS or brain "lesions." Itching that is not psychogenically related is due to something in the skin. You need to see a dermatologist. The brain MRI was of no value here. ...Read more

Sis s pregnant.hsv1 IgG -ve,igm +ve.primary infection.doc diag hsv1 in lips not genital.does IgM cross placenta?is der any chance to hve healthybaby?
Yes & possible: Herpes simplex can affect the fetus, especially if it's contracted during the third trimester Since you sis's IgM was positive but IgG negative, it suggests she recently acquired the virus. She is very close to the third trimester. Treatment with Valtrex (valacyclovir) is pretty safe by 21 weeks and may reduce the chance of transmission of the virus to her baby. It should be considered. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Diag gbs3/11/13, brainmrineg but MS has been suspected, what could cause sudden ascending unilateral pain from foot-hip, vicaprofin noneffective.
Consider this: The guillain-barre could be followed by a chronic immune neuropathic process called cidp, which likewise needs to be addressed. The ascending pain could be emanating from the ankle or perhaps coming from lower back, such as tarsal tunnel syndrome or lumbar radiculopathy, respectively. These are possibilities which might be evaluated. Have a neurologist sort this out. Doubt ms. ...Read more

While no one would: ...recommend a AA battery for a pacifier, it's good that s/he didn't swallow it. The fever, cold & earache are unrelated to it.
