Figure 3 Axial MRI of neonate from group II on day of life 14 (case no. 3). Arrows whether in T1-weighted (a) or T2-weighted (b) axial images show sizable bilateral cortical and subcortical T1 hypointense and T2 hyperintense lesions seen along bilateral cerebral hemispheres exhibiting near cerebrospinal fluid signal intensity. This is associated with dilatation of third and lateral ventricles and relative thinning of the deep white matter bilaterally. Such features are likely attributed to bilateral sizable encephalomalacic changes as a sequel of extensive perinatal hypoxic insult.
