Abstract

It is usual to classify perinatal cerebral hemorrhage according to its etiology. FRIEDE (2) as well as PAPE and WIGGLESWORTH (6), differentiated a traumatic group from a hypoxic one (Table 1). They do however stress that different etiologies can lead to similar morphological changes. The clinical classification can be made nowadays by the newer methods of neuroradiology (1, 3–5, 7, 9). In this contribution we concentrate on hemorrhages into the germinal matrix. These hemorrhages are characteristic of asphyxia in the immature newborn.
