Abstract/OtherAbstract:
It is presently a universal practice to administer vitamin K at birth. Hence, the serious bleeding manifestations from vitamin K deficiency are nowadays very rare. We describe a case of late vitamin K deficiency bleeding presenting as intracranial hemorrhage with impending coning and the related review of literature. Such severe bleeding episodes due to vitamin K deficiency are associated with multiple cranial involvement and impending brain herniation is probably rare.
