MONTEIRO, Alexandra Maria Vieira et al. Atypical locations of cerebral hemorrhage in newborns: considerations about two cases. Radiol Bras [online]. 2009, vol.42, n.6, pp.403-405. ISSN 1678-7099.

Retrospective study of two cases of atypically localized cerebral hemorrhage among 777 newborns admitted to the neonatal intensive care unit at Casa de Saúde São José, Rio de Janeiro, RJ, Brazil. Clinical findings and imaging diagnoses were evaluated. The diagnostic effectiveness of ultrasonography was established by correlation with magnetic resonance imaging findings. Multifactorial etiology was observed, besides silent clinical presentation independently from localization. So far the neurological evaluation has satisfactorily progressed although the patients are still too young to allow a definite neurological evaluation.
