Prognosis of Cerebral Atrophy
Prognosis for Cerebral Atrophy:
prognosis for individuals with the disorder varies. Progressive cerebral
atrophy is fatal because the atrophy spreads to all parts of the brain.
Cerebral atrophy that is limited to a specific area of the brain affects
normal functioning, however, it is not necessarily fatal.
