Treatments and drugs

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Except for surgery for craniosynostosis, there's generally no treatment that will enlarge your child's head or reverse complications of microcephaly. Treatment focuses on ways to manage your child's condition. Early childhood intervention programs that include speech, physical and occupational therapy may help your child strengthen abilities.

Certain complications of microcephaly, such as seizures or hyperactivity, may be treated with medication.
