Abstract

Objective: To review the development of comorbidities in patients living with cerebral palsy (CP) and explore potential areas for intervention by consultant pharmacists. Data Sources: A MEDLINE search (1993 to present) was conducted to identify literature in the English language focusing on CP and aging. Based on the initial literature evaluation, an additional search was conducted to locate literature focusing on comorbidities in CP including, but not limited to, nutritional deficiencies, medication misadventures, osteoporosis, gastroesophageal reflux disease, and pain. Study Selection and Data Extraction: All studies evaluating coexisting medical conditions associated with CP as they relate to aging. Data Synthesis: CP affects nearly 500,000 adults in the United States. Spastic CP is the most common form. Chronic medical conditions typically seen in the general older adult population may occur earlier in life for patients with CP. Conclusion: Health care maintenance issues are often overlooked in adult patients with CP. Consultant pharmacists can be helpful resources and advocates for appropriate medication therapy, monitoring, and preventive services for these patients.
