Double Hemiplegia

The use of the term Double Hemiplegia is not applied with consistency to define varying forms of cerebral palsy and should therefore be avoided. Sometimes it is used to describe cerebral palsy when it affects all four limbs but with asymmetry between the right and left sides. It has also been used to describe instances in which there is more involvement in the arm than in the leg.

Hemiplegia, Quadriplegia, and Diplegia are more common terms to describe patterns of involvement. More useful information can be found by referring to the resources available for the classification of cerebral palsy that is most closely aligned with the motor disorders presented.
