Abstract

Cerebellar hemorrhage is a relatively rare phenomenon in neonates, and most cases are associated with intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH). Prenatally diagnosed intracranial hemorrhage is rare, and diagnoses of cerebellar hemorrhage are even rarer. In our literature search, we discovered 3 cases of prenatal diagnosis of cerebellar hemorrhage, all accompanied by IVH. None of the neonates survived. We report a case initially observed in utero by sonography of cerebellar hemorrhage without evidence of IVH, causing ventriculomegaly in a 32-week twin fetus who was subsequently successfully treated.
