  • Look Inside

We have experienced 2 newborn infants with epidural hemorrhage, one of whom was operated with success.

Case 1 was a newborn male who was delivered after 37 weeks gestation by the application of obstetrical forceps. Resuscitation, such as artificial respiration and oxygen inhalation, were administered to the patient who had been asphyxiated for 25 minutes after birth. The latent period lasted 6 hours, during which time the patient did well. Then the baby's cry began to weaken. Twenty-four hours after birth, grunttng, cyanosis and convulsion occurred. He showed swellings of the scalp in the bitemporal areas. Reflexes were hyperactive.
