Terson Syndrome in a Healthy Term Infant: Delivery-Associated Retinopathy and Intracranial Hemorrhage OPHTHALMIC SURGERY LASERS & IMAGING RETINA Moshfeghi, D. M. 2018; 49 (10): E154–E156


A term healthy infant was noted to have cephalohematoma following normal spontaneous vaginal delivery (NSVD). At 9 days of age, the attending team performed wide-angle remote digital fundus imaging and the left eye was noted to have scattered multi-laminar hemorrhages. Magnetic resonance imaging was performed which revealed occipital infarct and subarachnoid hemorrhage. A diagnosis of neonatal Terson syndrome was made. The child remained asymptomatic and the fundus hemorrhages resolved without sequelae. This case represents the first documented instance of Terson syndrome following NSVD and may represent a possible etiology of the common newborn retinal hemorrhage. Alternative terminology - delivery-associated retinopathy and intracranial hemorrhages - is proposed to describe these findings. [Ophthalmic Surg Lasers Imaging Retina. 2018;49:e154-e156.].
