Cerebral palsy (CP) occurs as a result of an insult to the developing brain which may be due to birth asphyxia, trauma, infection, or prematurity in the antenatal, perinatal, or postnatal period. It is characterized by varying degrees of motor, sensory, and intellectual impairment. CP clinically manifests as spastic, dyskinetic, ataxic, and mixed type according to the involvement of brain. Additional developmental disabilities such as mental retardation, epilepsy, visual, hearing, speech, cognitive, behavioral abnormalities, and chronic systemic diseases may be present in these patients. Here, we have discussed the successful management of a case of spastic CP for removal of bladder calculus with proper perioperative care.
