Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The incidence of vitamin K deficiency in infancy has decreased markedly, due to prophylactic administration of vitamin K during the neonatal period. However, vitamin K deficiency bleeding may occur during or after the neonatal period despite prophylactic administration in Japan. Two cases are reported of intracranial hemorrhage associated with coagulopathy in full-term infants who had received prophylactic administration of vitamin K. More reliable methods for prophylactic administration should be established.
