Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Ductus arteriosus aneurysm (DAA) can be associated with neonatal thromboembolism. We report a neonate with systemic thromboembolism causing acute cerebral infarction with DAA, arterial, and venous thrombosis, discovered on CT angiography. The role of DAA was suspected as a potential etiology of systemic thromboembolism in this case. CT angiography with three-dimensional reconstruction was valuable delineating the adjunctive vascular structures. Screening for presence of DAA may be considered in the neonatal thromboembolism.
