Multicystic encephalomalacia in liveborn twin with a stillborn macerated co-twin.

, , , , , and . J Pediatr 95 (5 Pt 1): 798--800 (November 1979)


Computed tomography showed multiple cystic lesions in the brains of three infants with cerebral palsy. Each patient was the product of a twin pregnancy with a stillborn, macerated co-twin. In two patients angiography was performed and suggested that the cystic lesions were multicystic encephalomalacia due to perinatal arterial occlusion.
