The infant was 9 months old, but he still couldn't sit or kneel over by himself, couldn't take objects freely. His head and hands had been trembling ceaselessly. He was insensible to the surroundings and often cried disturbingly. He had a asphyxia history at birth. He had a infantile jaundice longer than normal. Since the third month of age,his families found there were some obstacle in the movemont of his limbs. He had a long-time low-grade fever(37-38centigrade) and a chronic diarrhea since birth. He often vomited and salivated. His eyes' secretion was yellow and his urine was yellow and smelly. A recent CT scan demonstrated cerebral palsy. All the symptoms were the symptoms of heat in Liver Channels. Because the liver and the kidney are in the same origin in TCM,the kidney is also affected by the heat. And because the kidney can produce marrow which generate the brain, his brain was also affected to hypogenetic by the heat. It's advisable to clear the heat of liver and replenish essence of kidney.
