Abstract

Infants with perinatal sentinel events in the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development Neonatal Research Network Hypothermia for Encephalopathy Trial had more basal ganglia and thalamus lesions on brain magnetic resonance imaging but similar neurodevelopmental outcomes at 18 months of age than infants without perinatal sentinel events. Outcomes correlated with the neonatal magnetic resonance imaging findings.
