Little disease

Little disease
a type of cerebral palsy that usually dates from birth and is due to lack of development of the pyramidal tracts. Contributing causes may include birth trauma, fetal anoxia, or illness of the mother during pregnancy. Clinically, it is characterized by congenital spastic stiffness of the limbs, muscular weakness, walking difficulties, and, usually, by convulsions, bilateral athetosis, and mental deficiency. Called also spastic diplegia.
