Abstract

Germinal matrix intraventricular hemorrhage has rarely been observed in the fetus. In most cases the etiology is clear. We report one case of prenatal diagnosis of a periventricular hemorrhage of uncertain etiology in a fetus of 22 weeks' gestation. For confirmation of the ultrasound diagnosis, antenatal magnetic imaging was performed. A male child was delivered in good condition at 37 weeks by Cesarean section. Postnatal ultrasound examination showed a cystic lesion in the right frontal lobe (10 × 10 mm) connecting with the right lateral ventricle. The development of the child at 18 months of age has been normal without any neurological impairment.
