Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy due to fetal or neonatal asphyxia is a major cause of acute mortality and chronic disability involving cerebral palsy, seizures, and mental retardation. The gestational age of the infant is one of the main variables determining the neuropathological picture of hypoxic-ischemic brain injury, and ulegyria (one of its neuropathological correlates) typically affects full-term infants. The damage usually involves the deeper sulcal portion of the convolutions while… CONTINUE READING
