Abstract

The sonographic diagnosis of cerebral hemorrhage, in preterm infants is quite easy. On the contrary the prematurity degree of the patient and the anatomic location of the intracerebellar hemorrhage makes of this important lesion a difficult diagnosis to achieve. We present our results of 248 preterm infants scanned by ultrasound, in our Institute, to detect intraventricular or subependymal hemorrhage. Out of the 248 patients the incidence of SEH or IVH was 21%, only 1 case of intracerebellar hemorrhage, as complication of IVH-SHE, was found. Another intracerebellar hemorrhage was diagnosed in a full term newborn without other signs of hemorrhage.
