In brief: Not that we know
For more on periventricular leukomalacia, ask a pediatric neurologist, developmental psychologist or neonatologist.
They can provide information on outcomes.

In brief: No
Pvl is not reversible.
However, the long term effects of pvl can be minimized with appropriate physical therapy. It's a long process, and can go on for years or even be life long. In general, the earlier and more thorough the intervention, the better the outcome.

In brief: No
The injury of periventricular leukomalacia is not itself reversible, but anatomic correlations between the location of injury and deficits are unreliable because of the "plasticity" of infant brains.
