Perinatal Cerebral Damage

  • Reinhard L. Friede


This chapter was conceived as a supplement to the corresponding sections of the text Developmental Neuropathology.l An effort was made to review the more recent literature of the past 10 years; to avoid overlaps, there is hardly any coverage of the data quoted in the above-mentioned source.


Subdural Hematoma Intraventricular Hemorrhage Perinatal Asphyxia Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus Hyaline Membrane Disease 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
