A 2-year-old Child Is Only Able To Walk, Eyes Are Enlarged And Veins Are Enlarged When Crying?
Afternoon …. I want to ask, I have a child aged 2 years and 4 months. The development is very slow, the road can only be 1 month. My son’s upper head is rather enlarged … his eyes when I compare it with a little bigger now. the veins in his head when he cries out enlarge dom, like there is a band. then the veins in his face are getting clearer and clearer, the veins look bigger. Why is that?
Thank you for the question.
Need to be clear, was your baby born enough months? Is the birth weight enough (more than 2500 grams)? Are there other complaints that your baby is experiencing, such as seizures, fever, vomiting, inactivity, and so on? When you are pregnant, are there certain medical disorders that you experience, such as infections, chronic diseases, and so on?
Judging from the information you convey, the condition of your baby's head is enlarged, the veins are clearly visible, accompanied by eyes that look like it could indicate hydrocephalus. This condition occurs when fluid in the brain and spinal cord (cerebrospinal fluid) accumulates in the ventricular cavity, either due to excessive production or obstructed disposal. This condition can make the baby's head appear enlarged, and the baby may experience growth and development disorders.
In addition to hydrocephalus, a variety of other conditions can also inhibit infant development, for example a history of premature birth or LBW, genetic, lack of stimulation, musculoskeletal disorders, cognitive disorders, neurological disorders, malnutrition, and so on.
To be clearer, it is better to check yourself directly to the doctor or pediatrician to do a more in-depth evaluation, for example with X-rays, CT scans, and so on. If the pure condition occurs related to developmental disorders, maybe you will be directed to see your baby to a specialist pediatrician subspecialist growth and development. However, if there really is an underlying organic disorder, then different treatments can also be done.
Hope this helps ...
