Five cases of neonatal cerebral venous thrombosis (NCVT) diagnosed by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are presented in this report. MRI was specific for the anatomic diagnosis, demonstrating involvement of the superior sagittal sinus in 3 infants or deep venous system in the remaining 2. Four cases were associated with perinatal hypoxia or cranial trauma.(More)
Five cases of fetal ventriculomegaly are described in detail. Following ultrasonography, either computerized tomography or magnetic resonance imaging was used in an attempt to clarify the structural pathology of the ventriculomegaly. In two patients, a precise diagnosis was achieved while a probable diagnosis was established in a third patient. The diverse(More)
From 1985 to 1991, 13 children were diagnosed at the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria, Saint Francis Medical Center, with cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) by magnetic resonance imaging scan. Ages ranged from newborn to 5 years. Six children were premature neonates, five were term neonates and two were 5 years old. In the premature(More)
While fetal cranial sonography has been used for the sensitive detection of ventriculomegaly, ancillary imaging techniques may be needed for precise delineation of structural abnormalities. This report outlines the radiologic and clinical results using maternal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in ten patients with suspected fetal intracranial anomalies.(More)
A retrospective analysis was undertaken in a consecutive series of 33 full-term infants (birth weight >2500 g and a minimum of 37 weeks gestational age) with symptomatic intracranial hemorhage (ICH) admitted to a regional neonatal intensive care unit from January 1986 to December 1992. Eleven infants were born in our institution; 17 were male. The estimated(More)
The authors report two patients with closed head injury who suffered laceration with rupture of the third portion of the vertebral artery. One patient died suddenly, with angiographic evidence of bilateral vertebral artery rupture. The mechanism of injury to the C1-2 segment of the vertebral artery relating to head and neck injury is discussed.
The clinical utility of magnetic resonance imaging in pediatric neurosurgical patients was reviewed in a series of 126 scans. MRI was determined to be superior or equivalent to other imaging techniques in the evaluation of intracranial hypertension, developmental abnormalities, or acute conditions involving the spinal cord. In 74% of the scans performed(More)
