Aim. Hemiplegic cerebral palsy (HCP) is a condition occurring as a consequence of a non-progressive damage of the brain with incomplete anatomical and physical development during the early period of life. Its etiology is multifactorial, with the cause remaining unexplained in the majority of cases. This study aims to investigate whether thrombophilic factors correlates with the etiology in children with HCP.
