Intraventricular haemorrhage of the newborn

Dr Henry Knipe and Dr Jeremy Jones et al.

Intraventricular haemorrhage of the newborn is a distinct entity and considered separately from intraventricular haemorrhage (IVH) in adults.

In neonates, IVH is the result of germinal matrix haemorrhage, which ruptures through the ependymal lining and into the lateral ventricles.
