Abstract This paper was first presented at a meeting in 1905 and gives an insight into the problems faced in early neurosurgical operations in newborns and the way they were approached by an adventurous surgeon. 
Harvey Cushing and "birth hemorrhage": early pediatric neurosurgery at The Johns Hopkins Hospital.
The authors describe Cushing's treatment of 6 children, in all of whom Cushing established a diagnosis of "birth hemorrhage," and aim to understand the philosophy of his pediatric neurosurgical management and how this informed his development of neurosurgery as a new specialty. Expand
Non-Traumatic Acute Subdural Hemorrhage Due To Cranial Venous Hypertension
It is concluded that a common thread in many of these cases is likely to have been cranial venous hypertension at around the time of death, which may have implications in instances where small volume subdural hemorrhage is identified in the absence of other evidence of significant head injury.

Anatomy and development of the meninges: implications for subdural collections and CSF circulation
The dura is traditionally viewed as a supportive fibrous covering of the brain containing the dural venous sinuses but otherwise devoid of vessels and lacking any specific function. However, reviewExpand
The neuropathology of infant subdural haemorrhage.
As the possibility of non-accidental injury is often first raised by a radiologic report of subdural bleeding, it becomes critically important in the interpretation of the scan appearances to understand the unique physiology and anatomy of the infant dura. Expand
Retino‐Dural Hemorrhage of Infancy
The pathology of each of these signs and their pathophysiology is examined, and the importance of considering the birth, early clinical history, and predisposing vulnerabilities when examining a case of suspected abuse is emphasized. Expand
The “Shaken Baby” syndrome: pathology and mechanisms
The pathology and mechanisms of the three physiologically associated findings which constitute the “triad” and are seen in infants suffering from a wide range of non-traumatic as well as traumatic conditions are focused on. Expand

Neuropathology shows that most cases of shaken baby syndrome do not have traumatic axonal injury, but hypoxic–ischaemic injury and brain swelling, and their potential to cause chronic subdural collections and mimic SBS remains to be established. Expand
Shaken baby syndrome
A 35-day-old male infant with presumed shaken baby syndrome is reported, brought from a remote village 180 kms away from JIPMER, where poor feeding, focal clonic seizures were the initial symptoms. Expand
Shaken Baby Syndrome
Recent pathological, clinical, and biomechanical evidence questions the validity of the shaken baby syndrome (SBS), usually diagnosed by finding the triad of retinal hemorrhage, encephalopathy, andExpand
