Neonatal brain hemorrhage

Complications of premature birth include bleeding in the brain (intraventricular hemorrhage, or IVH) and periventricular leukomalacia (PVL). IVH is more common in premature babies than in full-term babies. When it occurs, it most commonly develops in the first three to four days after birth. Most cases of IVH can be detected by cranial ultrasound by the first week after delivery.
