problems associated with encephalocele include cleft palate

Stranger than strange.

I am Irish and being born in Ireland there is a problem with health records and in 2012 I was diagnosed with an unilateral cleft palate, in the 5 years since I have come to learn via on-line research that this mean I have always had a white matter volume loss and frontal lobe issues. I know this is strange as I am 51 now it can be seen neural tube defects are birth defects of the brain, my second recorded brain injury (a motorcycle RTC (age 36) with extensive MRI recorded being extensive) I am denied the effects in my brain. It bothers me not, as the reason is this and a complex life interactions is defined as a defective foramen magnum or deficiencies within. Life indeed is mysterious and can be so cruel and yet humorous as I can only laugh at myself being a fool for so long

I forgot that I had posted this on the brain and spine ambassador post and how its actually relevant to my condition

The posterior cranial fossa is part of the cranial cavity, located between the foramen magnum the hole in the base of the skull through which the spinal cord passes.

Again being foolish I am allowed to make errors.
