What causes pontine tegmental cap dysplasia?

The cause of PTCD is still unknown. Researchers think that this condition may happen due to a problem with the movement of cells in the developing brain (neuronal migration). Boys and girls are equally affected by this condition. All reported cases have been sporadic with no family history of the condition.[5199]
