THE DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT OF INTRACRANIAL HEMORRHAGE IN THE NEW-BORN

THE DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT OF INTRACRANIAL HEMORRHAGE IN THE NEW-BORN A review of the literature published on this subject within the last ten years leaves us with the impression that considerable confusion still exists as to the etiology and diagnosis of this condition, while the treatment advocated appears to be of rather a hit or miss type for the most part.

Abstract

A review of the literature published on this subject within the last ten years leaves us with the impression that considerable confusion still exists as to the etiology and diagnosis of this condition, while the treatment advocated appears to be of rather a hit or miss type for the most part. We are, therefore, suggesting an etiologic classification, together with methods of diagnosis and treatment which have so far proved adequate in our hands. This is based on a series of fourteen treated cases, five of which ended in death. Necropsies performed in three of these fatal cases demonstrated that in these particular cases any treatment would have been unavailing. One other patient died of definite hemorrhagic disease with symptoms of complicating hemorrhages in other organs, and the fifth patient died one month after an operation which gave complete relief of symptoms for two weeks. It is now universally admitted
