Subventricular echodensities medioventral to the caudate nucleus near the caudothalamic groove are regular ultrasonographic findings in preterm infants with germinal matrix hemorrhages. The transformation into pseudocysts is termed germinolysis. Interestingly, identical ultrasonographic findings are rarely even reported for near-term infants. We examined 5 cases of near-term infants presenting with various localized subventricular echodensities after various noncerebral infections (intra… CONTINUE READING
