Newer Techniques to Study Neonatal Hypoglycemia

Semin Perinatol. 2000 Apr;24(2):116-9. doi: 10.1053/sp.2000.6362.


Severe neurological sequelae may occur after symptomatic neonatal hypoglycemia. New neuroimaging techniques allow both structural and functional detection of these disturbances. The new diagnostic modalities have shown also transient structural findings associated with neonatal hypoglycemia. The prognostic value of these techniques remains still obscure.
