PMID:  6110043     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Real-time ultrasound was used to examine the brains of all 95 infants born at less than 33 weeks of gestation who were admitted to the neonatal unit of University College Hospital in 1979. Evidence was obtained which strongly suggested that pneumothorax causes and aggravates haemorrhage into the germinal layer and ventricles of preterm infants.
