Neonatal intracranial-intraocular hemorrhage “Terson syndrome”: A case report and review of the literature

Abstract. Terson syndrome is the occurrence of intraocular hemorrhage secondary to intracranial hemorrhage. Here we describe an infant with retinal hemorrhage attributed to a middle cerebral artery infarction and provide a review of previously reported cases of neonatal Terson syndrome in the literature. These cases highlight the need for early ophthalmologic evaluation in infants with significant intracranial hemorrhage to screen for Terson syndrome.
