Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Three different neuro-imaging studies were performed in 3 infants with hemorrhagic shock and encephalopathy syndrome (HSE). Areas of cerebral infarction were noted on CT. Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) showed decreased perfusion in these areas in one infant. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) also identified the areas of infarction, noted on CT, but provided additional information showing non-haem iron deposition in the thalami and basal ganglia.
