Cerebrovascular Disease and Cranioencephalic Injuries are the most frequent causes of static lesions of the Central Nervous System and the main requests for care that we receive, although there are neurological sequelae secondary to tumor, infectious, toxic and metabolic diseases that also receive attention in this clinic. .
The main sequelae caused by these diseases involve the involvement of the motor system (paralysis, gait disorders, balance disturbances, coordination and involuntary movements), sensitivity, cognition (orientation, attention, memory, language, thinking, calculation, etc.). .) and behavior, which condition severe limitations to perform the activities of daily life and cause a decrease in the quality of life of patients.

Static injuries due to cerebral palsy in childhood.
Sequelae of infection of the Central Nervous System with brain involvement.
