The relation between neonatal pulmonary haemorrhage and its underlying cause was studied by reviewing the clinical data and necropsy records of 315 newborn babies who had died between day 0 and 31 of life. Necropsy revealed massive and focal pulmonary haemorrhage in 6.9% and 19.3% of the infants, respectively. It has been concluded that pulmonary haemorrhage is a complication of various neonatal diseases related to hypoxia and/or infection, which occur in preterm infants with a much higher frequency than in term babies. Among patients with pulmonary haemorrhage, males and low birthweight babies predominated.
