In brief: PVL is caused by
lack of blood flow & oxygen to the white matter around the ventricles of the brain, an area most susceptible to damage near the end of the 2nd trimester. Symptoms often appear as motor development progresses head-to-toe the 1st year. However, contact http://www.
mycitymyplace.com/earlyintervention.htm. upon discharge from NICU & begin Early Intervention therapy to maximize motor development.
