Early diagnostic and prognostic indicators in full term infants with neonatal cerebral infarction: an integrated clinical, neuroradiological and EEG approach

Mercuri E.


PDF


In the last decade the increase in neonatal imaging in infants with abnormal neurological signs has highlighted the incidence and the wide spectrum of neonatal cerebral infarction. These lesions occur in 1 in 4000 full term infants and are often associated with convulsions in the first days after birth. This review will cover new knowledge on aetiology and classification of these lesions. Special attention will be paid to the value of an integrated approach, using clinical, EEG and neuroimaging tools as early diagnostic and prognostic indicators of outcome.
