MOCK exam Cerebral Palsy

A disorder movement and posture due to non progressive lesion that occur because of the damage in the developing brain.

The most common causes is Prematurity ( previously birth asphyxia are believed to be the most common causes)...

It is common even though most people think that this condition is rare.

So, i get this case. I know everything about it but my weakness is in the differential diagnosis. I would put muscular dystrophy as the first differential. I know about it. Ok. Fair enough. But when it came to my next differential, spinal cord disease, i am having a though block. All i can think is infection, tuberculosis...what else? I did not revise neuro before mock exam. My fault. Arr...

So then, i guess i could failed my long case today....
