About 1 out of 100 full term born infants develops intracranial hemorrhage. The study represents an analysis of intracranial hemorrhage over a ten-years period. Diagnosis was based on ultrasound scan. A division into five major bleeding types was done according to the location of the hemorrhage. The neurological outcome was reviewed. Patients were classified into three groups according to their neurological outcome: normal neurological development, mild neurological impairment, and severe neurological impairment. Between 1989-1999, 2019 full-term newborn infants were treated at the neonatal intensive care unit in Graz. 54 of them (2.7%) developed intracranial hemorrhage, of whom 13 (24%) suffered from subdural hemorrhage, 1 (2%) from primary subarachnoid hemorrhage, 14 (26%) from hemorrhage within the choroid plexus, 6 (11%) from intraventricular hemorrhage grade I (IVH I), 11 (20%) from intra- and periventricular hemorrhage (IVH III/PVH), 6 (11%) from hemorrhage within the basal ganglia, and 3 (6%) from intracerebellar hemorrhage. Considering the neurological outcome, 34 (63%) were diagnosed as being developed normally, 15 (28%) developed any neurological impairment, 3 (5%) died, whereas 2 (4%) did not participate our follow up program.
