Abstract

Neonates with cerebral infarction do not present with specific symptoms and the condition is usually insidious, so many atypical cases are not diagnosed properly during the neonatal stage. Normal neurological examination results may be found in newborns who have actually had a cerebral infarction insidiously. We present two newborns with cerebral infarction. One had clinical symptoms of seizures. Brain computed tomography showed a low- attenuated area and magnetic resonance angiography showed a decreased caliber and number of cerebral artery branches. The other had normal neurological examination results. He was referred to our hospital due to cyanosis. Brain sonography revealed a focal hyperechoic area and T2 weighted magnetic resonance image showed an increased signal intensity area. The incidence, etiologies, clinical and radiographic findings are also reviewed.
