Cyst of the newborn in the head
Literally a couple of years ago the cyst of the brain in newborns was an unusual and rare phenomenon. But recently this problem is gaining momentum, because according to statistics every third baby is born with this ailment. The formation of the cyst of the brain affects the fluid that accumulates in places of dead tissue. It looks like a small ball full of liquid. Less often, it occurs in the walls of the shell, which, when inflamed, are joined together.
This new growth can occur anywhere: inside or on the surface of the brain, in one or even several parts. Cysts in the head of a newborn are not considered an oncological problem and in themselves they are completely harmless. But, with the growing up of a child, they also grow and irrevocably affect the rest of the brain. In connection with this, such a disease can not be neglected.
In children, based on the location, period of education and properties, distinguish three types of this ailment:
This kind of cyst in the head of a newborn is formed before the moment of birth. If it was found in the early stages of pregnancy, then, as a rule, it is not dangerous. In most cases, the cyst itself resolves closer to the time of delivery or in the first weeks afterward. Development, she can get only in cases where a pregnant woman has had inflammation or some kind of infectious disease. If during repeated examinations the dynamics of recovery is absent, the attending physician makes a decision on the basis of the observations made.
This species is located inside the brain. The cause of its formation is called weakened blood circulation in the brain, resulting in a lack of oxygen, and then the death of tissues. Such a disease is subject to regular examinations at the doctor.
This type of cyst, unlike the previous one, is formed on the surface of the brain. It is filled with cerebrospinal fluid. Inflammation and trauma are the main causes of its occurrence. The liquor cyst progresses most rapidly, traumatizing the brain. Epileptic seizures may occur. About 3% of babies are born with this form of disease. According to the research, most often these are boys.
