Hemorrhagic colitis associated with a rare Escherichia coli serotype.
Development of computerized tomography (CT) that radically changes early diagnosis of ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke.
A hemorrhagic stroke-the more common form of stroke in infants and children under age two-occurs when a weakened blood vessel leaks or bursts, causing bleeding in the brain tissue or near the surface of the brain.
The rate of ischemic stroke and hemorrhagic stroke is similar among children aged one to 14.
In the National Hospital Discharge Survey from 1980-1998, the rate of stroke for infants less than 30 days old (per 100,000 live births per year) was 26.4, with rates of 6.7 for hemorrhagic stroke and 17.8 for ischemic stroke.
