We describe two infants, one who was stillborn at 25 weeks' estimated gestational age and one term infant who was born live and died shortly after birth with large intracranial space-occupying lesions that exerted significant mass effect. At autopsy, large soft-tissue spheres of partially organized brain tissue containing neurons, astrocytes… CONTINUE READING
