What is Encephalomalacia and Multicystic Encephalomalacia?

While encephalomalacia is actually a softening of the brain tissue following an event like hemorrhage or inflammation in the brain, multicystic encephalomalacia occurs when brain tissue that has been deprived of blood or oxygen is replaced by multiple cavities filled with fluid.

If your child has encephalomalacia, the medical bills and expenses for the special care will be significant. If you retain The Fitzgerald Law Firm to represent your child, we will investigate your child’s medical records, including records from the pregnancy, labor, delivery and postpartum periods. After consulting with pediatric neurologists and other medical experts, we will attempt to identify the cause of your child’s encephalomalacia. If the encephalomalacia could have been avoided, we will seek to recover compensation from those responsible.
