Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy secondary to perinatal asphyxia in the term newborn is the most common recognized cause of the subsequent motor deficits often grouped under the rubric "cerebral palsy." In order to provide insight into the basic nature and pathogenesis of the brain injury in such infants, we studied regional cerebral blood flow (CBF) by positron emission tomography (PET) in 17 asphyxiated term infants during the acute period of illness. A consistent and apparently unifying… CONTINUE READING
