In brief: Cerebral palsy

Quadreplegic cerebral palsy is the most common type, it is a static brain injury due to a sigifican injury to the brain like hypoxia and trauma, the most common cause in early life is hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy which occurred pernatally, around the time of delivery, exam showed increased muscle tone and brisk reflexes also with microcephaly and developmental delay.
