My son most likely sustained a stroke to his cerebellum while in utero. when he was 2.9 yrs old it was found his cerebellum was markedly smaller on one side than the other (hypoplasia). We were in a very high speed accident (50 mph) when he was at 26 weeks in utero. I would like to know what treatment, if any, there are for fetal strokes, since my son went without any such treatment. He had 1 ultrasound 3 hours post accident which was clear. We have since found out that infarcts (strokes) don't show on ultrasound until 5 days post stroke. WE have resolved our car settlement to our dismay because we were unable to prove causation for his problems; developmental delay, skull defect and cerebellar hypoplasia presumed to be caused by stroke in utero.
