The prognosis of PTCD-appears to be very variable. Language disorders are a constant feature in PTCD and may result in complete absence of verbal language, sign language only, understandable speech with moderate to severe problems in both being able to understand and to express oneself. The neurological outcome of PTCD patients is also variable, ranging from severe intellectual disability up to normal intelligence.
