The article reflects on a study on dyskinetic cerebral palsy among Swedish children. The study reveals that children born between 1995 and 1998 showed a decrease in the prevalence of cerebral palsy as a whole, not of dyskinetic cerebral palsy. It states that out of a total of 202,095 live births, 55 children have dyskinetic cerebral palsy at the age of 4-8, a prevalence of 0.27 per 1000. According to the report, dyskinetic cerebral palsy occurs predominantly in term-born infants with perinatal events suggesting hypoxia and ischemia.
