Is cerebral palsy the outcome of all in utero stroke children?

Question by wrestlingmom012005: Is cerebral palsy the outcome of all in utero stroke children?
Grandaughter diagnosed with in utero stroke on left side of brain. She has some right side weakness. Everywhere I look it seems like cerebral palsy is the outcome. Does anyone know?

CP is

a non progressive lession with an abnormality of motor function (the ability to move and control movements) that is acquired at an early age either prenatal perinatal or post natal up to 2 years of age..

So to answer you question, an in utero stroke is generally considered cerebral palsy specifically hemiplegic cp (one side of the body)

Hope this helps
