This study was an investigation of a possible correlation between either the gestational age (GA) and type of brain injury or between the gestational age and type, distribution and severity of cerebral palsy (CP). Four hundred sixty-one children with a birthweight > or = 1250 g and GA > or = 30 weeks with a complicated neonatal period and/or brain injury on(More)
The aim of this review is to determine the relationship between gestational age (GA) and prevalence, type, distribution, and severity of cerebral palsy (CP). Epidemiological studies with cohorts expressed by GA were assessed. A comprehensive meta-analysis and meta-regression was performed on four fetal age categories. Studies of children with CP as a target(More)
We report three siblings, two of whom had a neuropathological study, with a new subtype of congenital ponto-cerebellar atrophy (PCH). In addition to the brain stem and cerebellar anomalies common to all types of this heterogeneous condition, there were unique developmental defects in the telencephalon: absence of the claustrum, diffuse cortical changes(More)
From the history of 15 personal patients--8 reported here in extenso--and from 63 patients in the literature with the diagnosis of posterior fossa subdural haemorrhage during life, we discuss the possibility of detecting tentorial damage on computed tomography (CT) and ultrasound (US) scan. The association of a (peri)cerebellar haemorrhage with(More)
This study aimed to provide a more comprehensive picture of the prevalence of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in a geographic cohort of extremely preterm born adolescents by using established diagnostic instruments in addition to screening instruments. 53 participants passed a screening procedure with two screening instruments and a diagnostic evaluation(More)
INTRODUCTION In neonates and small infants, early diagnosis of central diabetes insipidus (CDI) and treatment with desmopressin in low doses (avoiding severe hypo- or hypernatremia) are important to prevent associated high morbidity and mortality in this particular age group. CASE PRESENTATION We described pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic results of(More)
Cerebellar agenesis is a rarely observed malformation that is frequently associated with other defects. We describe a neonate with an isolated cerebellar agenesis. In addition to the absence of recognizable cerebellar tissue, cranial magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated a hypoplastic base of the pons and absence of the normal outline of the inferior(More)
