Abstract

A neonate with hypoxic damage to the brain from a complicated pregnancy and delivery demonstrated a prolonged retention of contrast medium in her cerebral dural veins and brain substance after cardiac catheterization. Myoclonic status epilepticus began during injection of the contrast medium and persisted until its clearance as noted by CT scan. A postmortem examination did not reveal any vascular or congenital abnormalities that would account for these effects.
