Fetal and Perinatal Cerebral Pathology

Pathology of Vascular Insults Late Sequelae of Vascular Insults Metabolic and Toxic Diseases Congenital and Neonatal Infections Sudden Infant Death Syndrome

A number of insults—vascular, infectious, toxic, metabolic, and traumatic—may afflict fetuses and neonates. Vascular insults are especially implicated in a variety of nervous system diseases that can occur during the fetal and perinatal periods. Due to the unique reaction of the immature neural tissue to noxious agents, vascular cerebral injuries occurring during these periods present distinct pathology.
