Neonatal Intraventricular Hemorrhage

MRI of this 4 days old neonate showing extensive early subacute Intraventricular Hemorrhage in the left lateral ventricle. Hemorrhage is showing as low signal on T2 TSE and high signal on T1 IR and T1 SE sequences. See discussion about Intracranial Hemorrhage on MRI in my previous post. Note also signal changes and swelling of the left nucleus caudatus. This is most likely due to venous hemorrhagic infarcts.
