Cranial ultrasound findings in well newborn Ugandan infants


Hagmann, C F; Robertson, N J; Acolet, D; Chan, D; Onda, S; Nyombi, N; Nakakeeto, M; Cowan, F M (2010). Cranial ultrasound findings in well newborn Ugandan infants. Archives of Disease in Childhood. Fetal and Neonatal Edition, 95(5):F338-F344.

Abstract

Apparently well term-born Ugandan infants frequently have abnormalities on cUS. These are mainly increased WM echogenicity, SEP and CPC. These may relate to the reported high incidence of congenital infections in this population but this remains to be confirmed. The observations provide baseline data for comparison with scans from sick infants from similar communities and are also important for studies in which cUS will be used to assess progress.
