Abstract

Posterior fossa hemorrhage detected by computed tomography (CT) in seven term newborns was managed by nonsurgical means. All infants were developmentally normal two to four years later with the exception of one infant who died with a massive posterior fossa hemorrhage. Two infants with extensive hemorrhages developed hydrocephalus. Spinal fluid drainage and diuretic therapy resulted in the resolution of hydrocephalus in one infant and delayed the placement of a ventriculoperitoneal shunt in the other. This series documents normal outcome in nonsurgically managed neonatal posterior fossa hemorrhages of varying degrees of severity.
