OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between cortical development and cerebral electrical activity at early gestational ages. METHODS We obtained EEGs (7.2+/-3.8 days) and MR brain images (3.2+/-2.9 days) after birth in 17<30 week gestation infants without evidence of focal brain injury The EEGs were assessed for discontinuity(More)
Background. The neural substrate for adverse neurodevelopmental outcome in extremely preterm infants remains incompletely determined.Aims. To determine the spectrum of brain abnormalities in the preterm population using serial magnetic resonance (MR) imaging from birth to term age and make preliminary correlations with neurodevelopmental outcome.Methods.(More)
G eneralized edema due to insulin is a rare phenomenon. We report a 35-year-old woman with newly diagnosed type 1 diabetes who presented with generalized edema, serous effusions, and acute renal failure a few hours after starting insulin. The patient presented with diabetic ketoacidosis after a 12-month history of polydipsia and polyuria. She had lost 2 kg(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate EEG maturational features in preterm infants below 27 weeks postmenstrual age. METHODS EEGs recorded from 5 preterm infants (postmenstrual age 24-26 weeks) were examined and selected maturational features were scored and quantified. The five infants also had serial cranial ultrasound scans (US) and magnetic resonance images of the(More)
