Abstract

Objective: Increased systemic inflammatory response during intrauterine period or period before the age of 3 is associated with cerebral palsy (CP) pathogenesis; however, effects of inflammatory processes involving mast cell activation in elder children with CP remain unclear. We aimed to investigate the role of mast cells and proinflammatory cytokines in children with CP at 3-18 years of age.
