In brief: Developmental Delay

Delayed developmental milestones are of concern because they indicate the presence of pathology.
There are many causes of these observed milestones delays and need to be evaluated carefully in order to ascertain the cause. Common causes are perinatal events that subject the fetus to hypoxia. Other causes include muscular dystrophies and genetic disorders that cause hypotonia.
