Method: This work seeks to reconstruct the historical course of cerebral palsy in order to relate it to the current challenges that arise in the area of public health for its approach. For this, a bibliographic review work was carried out in digital databases based on keywords. A literature search was performed using the data bases of MEDLINE (PubMed), SCOPUS, LILACS and Google Scholar. Texts were included in both English and Spanish. Results: It describes in the work different definitions that the PC takes from the nineteenth century to its current international definition agreed in 2005. More than 150 years took a long time to establish a definition demonstrating the complexity involved. The contributions of the International Classification of Functionality and Health (CIF) currently bring new challenges in the treatment. Conclusions: Knowing the history of the PC definition by relating it to changes in the disability paradigm allows us to analyze the complexity of the situation and calls for reflection on our health practices. Introducción: La definición de la parálisis cerebral (PC) ha sido dificultosa a lo largo de los años principalmente por el gran número de manifestaciones y enfermedades concomitantes que puede presentar, tomando características únicas en cada sujeto que la padece. Método: Este trabajo buscó reconstruir el recorrido histórico de la parálisis cerebral para poder relacionarlo a los desafíos actuales que se presentan en el área de la salud pública para su abordaje. Para esto se llevó a cabo un trabajo de revisión bibliográfica en bases de datos digitales a partir de palabras clave. Se realizó una búsqueda bibliográfica utilizando las bases de dato de MEDLINE (PubMed), SCOPUS, LILACS y Google Scholar. Se incluyeron textos tanto en inglés como en español. Resultados: Se describen en el trabajo a distintas definiciones que toma la PC desde el siglo XIX hasta su actual definición internacional consensuada en 2005. Pasaron más de 150 años para establecerse una definición demostrando la complejidad que conlleva. Los aportes de la Clasificación Internacional de Funcionalidad y Salud (CIF) traen aparejados en la actualidad nuevos desafíos en el tratamiento. Conclusiones: Conocer la historia de la definición de la PC relacionándola con los cambios de paradigma de la discapacidad permite analizar la complejidad de la situación, y llama a la reflexión sobre nuestras prácticas de sanitarias.

Resultados: Descreve no trabalho diferentes definições que o PC toma do século XIX para sua atual definição internacional acordada em 2005. Mais de 150 anos levaram muito tempo para estabelecer uma definição que demonstrasse a complexidade envolvida. As contribuições da Classificação Internacional de Funcionalidade e Saúde (CIF) trazem atualmente novos desafios no tratamento. Conclusões: Conhecer a história da definição de PC relacionando-a a mudanças no paradigma da deficiência nos permite analisar a complexidade da situação e exige uma reflexão sobre nossas práticas de saúde.
