Will mosNt babies born with Nuchal cord also get periventricular leukomalacia

Posted , 1 user is following.

Ok, first things first this is actually about me, I'm not a father who's just been through some traumatic time.

So basically I've been doing a bit of research into my current Temproal lobe Epilepsy condition and it turns out that I went through Nucal cord when I was born. When I was diagnosed with epilepsy at the age of 4 they discovered I had Periventricular leukomalacia.

To go into a little more detail the cord was around my I neck stopped breathing and had to have CPR performed on me.

Anyway, I have a few questions here: Is the Periventricular leukomalacia related to the Nucal cord? If they are related is it possible I had Eplesy at a much earlier age then when I was diagnosed?

Just an FYI the major way it was picked up, in the end, was due to two major Tonic clonic (grand-mal) seizures.

EDIT: Sorry everyone it appears I may have stuffed up in my research. It turns out my Epilepsy is TLE, not FLE. Also, the report said an MRI was done and shows "some periventricular leukomalacia (PVL) and some focal Focal abnormalities in the right and left Temporal lobes consistent with Mesial temporal scierosis.

If anyone knows anything it would help out a lot

Thanks, guys
