[Transfontanelle echography: correlation with anatomopathological data. Apropos of 39 cases in newborn infants].

Abstract

Thirty-nine neonates including 29 prematures had correlation studies of trans-fontanelle ultrasounds with post-mortem anatomic findings. Occipital hyper-echogenicity can be physiological when it is symmetric in the premature infant, and may indicate ischemia and/or anoxia when it is asymmetrical. No abnormal pathology went undetected by echo. Cortical gyri were never seen prior to 32 weeks gestational age.
