hai, my baby is 8 months and 15 days old. Her head circumference at the time of birth was 34 cm. Now it is 47 cm. On doctors advice we have done a MRI scan and by seeing the report he told that she has a complication with CSF(Cerebrospinal fluid)production. Can anybody help to know more about this...

i am curious about the data in the chart. - what is the source? - is it all-india data? or region specific? - are there more specific charts for certain ethnic groups? - what about rural/urban? any differences?

my daughter was born with a small head. at age 2 it was 42cm. now at age 7 it is 47cm., but the doctors say she doesn't have microcephaly? she has several developmental delays and is mental retarded. they did an mri normal and fragile x and chromosone tests normal. they are saying it's due to me probably? but refuse to do any testing cat scan etc. to see what the cause is, any suggestions?
