    Spots on unborn baby;s brain down syndrome ruled out
    kylahills posted:
    My daughter -in-law is due, May 5, 2014. Her unborn daughter has spots remaining on her brain after the time they should have disappered. The doctors have ruled out Downs Syndrome. What else could be causing these spots not to go away?

    Please answer me soon, as I'm very nervous and scared as to what might be wrong with my granddaughter!

    Thank you,
    Kim Hills

    Hi kylahills,

    I think that this is something you and your daughter-in-law need to speak with her doctors more about. They may be able to give you some theories on what they believe the spots are, and can put your mind at ease. We cannot give medical advice or diagnosis on this board. I know that any kind of abnormal scan can be scary, but seeking advice from her doctors is really best. I hope that you all are doing well!

    Best wishes,
