Bleeding in the brain is still one of the main causes of perinatally acquired handicap, affecting one percent of full-term newborns. Recognition of brain-hemorrhage-related disorders during life and their differential diagnosis has been made possible by modern brain imaging techniques. This book provides a comprehensive guide to the diagnosis, management, and prevention of intracranial hemorrhage in the full-term infant. Drawing on a wealth of data from neonatologists, pediatric radiologists, and pediatricians, the authors thoroughly describe perinatal intracranial events, covering anatomical landmarks, superficial and deep hemorrhage, birth trauma, vascular malformations, hemorrhagic diathesis, infection, tumors, and medico-legal implications. This volume will be an invaluable reference for neonatologists, pediatricians, pediatric radiologists, obstetricians, perinatal pathologists, neuropediatricians, and those involved in medical law.

Industry Reviews

'This is a well-written concise account of an important topic. I strongly recommend this book to pathologists who examine perinatal deaths, for whom imprecise descriptions and inappropriate conclusions can have very serious medico-legal implications.' J.W. Keeling, Paediatric and Perinatal Epidemiology 'This book presents a wealth of personal experience from one large academic unit as well as an excellent overview of the relevant literature of this important topic ... an interesting read and an important addition to the departmental library.' T.Jaspan, Neuroradiology '... an important contribution as a source for the paediatrician or general practitioner who cares for new born infants. It is not a book that one would refer to on a daily basis, but certainly, given its cost and more importantly its content, it is a book worth having available for perusal.' The Journal of Paediatrics, Vol 125 '... an excellent introduction for those wishing to pursue further study in this area.' The British Journal of Radiology 'This book has an air of authority as it introduces clinicians to various types of cranial haemorrhage and their aetiologies ... Read it, enjoy it, and obtain a copy of this book for your library.' S. W. D'Souza, British Journal of Obstetric Gynaecology
