Mixed

The term mixed is used to describe a form of Cerebral Palsy that does not fit neatly into one of the other classifications. Different types of movement disorder may exist at the same time. Generally health care professionals will classify CP according to the predominant form of involvement of the individual. The classification can vary over time.

Cerebral Palsy
Because of this convention, the term Mixed is used less frequently than other descriptions.
The most common combination of forms of CP classified as Mixed are Spastic and Athetoid. In the case of this combination, there has been damage to both the cerebral cortex (spastic) and the basal ganglia (athetoid) areas of the brain. Another form might include having high muscle tone in some muscles, and low muscle tone in others.
