Rhogam Microcephaly Causes and Reviews
Most brain malformations begin long before a baby is born. Something damages the developing nervous system or causes it to develop abnormally. Sometimes it's a genetic problem. In other cases, exposure to certain medicines, infections, or radiation during pregnancy interferes with brain development. Parts of the brain may be missing, abnormally small or large, or not fully developed.
Treatment depends upon the problem. In many cases, treatment only helps with symptoms. It may include antiseizure medicines, shunts to drain fluid from the brain, and physical therapy.
There are head malformations that do not involve the brain. Craniofacial disorders are the result of abnormal growth of soft tissue and bones in the face and head. It's common for new babies to have slightly uneven heads, but parents should watch the shape of their baby's head for possible problems.

Had RhoGAM after childirth in 1972 and 1975. In 1992 I was diagnosed with hepatitis C. I now have stage 3 liver fibrosis and inflammation. I went through interferon-ribavirin treatment for hepatitis C recently, but did not clear the virus successfully. Did anyone else get hepatitis C from RhoGAM?
