One hundred and eleven high risk neonates were subjected to (cranial ultrasound (CR-USG) Caranial sonography was performed by 2D realtime scanner with 5 MHz transducer through anterior and posterior fontanelle and temporo-squamal suture. One quarter of these neonates developed intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) within 120 hours of birth. Of them 42.8% neonates recovered completely, 21.4% developed ventriculomegaly, 21.4% neonates expired, 10.4% developed pseudo-porencephalic cysts and 3.5% developed aqueductal block. It is concluded that CR-USG is a useful technique for detection and monitoring of complications of ICH and at least one screening sonogram is essential in the first week of life of all high risk neonates.
