True about status marmoratus is all except. (AIPG 2012)
|A||Present in basal ganglia|
|B||Associate with asphyxia|
|C||Have a marbled appearance|
o Extrapyramidal cerebral palsy secondary to acute intrapartum near-total asphyxia is associated with bilaterally symmetric lesions in the posterior putamen and ventrolateral thalamus.
o These lesions appear to be the correlate of the neuropathologic lesion called status marmoratus in the basal ganglia.
o These are present in full-term infants of basal nucleus lesions resulting from acute total asphyxia.
o The lesions have a marbled appearance caused by neuronal loss and an overgrowth of myelin in the putamen, caudate, and thalamus.
