Abstract

Three severely asphyxiated full-term newborns showed tomographic findings of bilateral symmetrical hyperdensities restricted to the thalamic region. All these patients had a strikingly similar poor neurological outcome characterized by dystonia, severe mental retardation and acquired microcephaly. We presume that these bithalamic hyperdensities could be an early predictor of the later status marmoratus.
