Infant intracranial hemorrhages (brain bleeds) are hypoxic or traumatic birth injuries distinguished by abrupt, rapid bleeding within the skull or brain of a newborn baby. Extracranial hemorrhages are similar to intracranial hemorrhages, but the bleeding occurs just outside the baby’s skull. There are several different types of brain bleeds, depending on the nature and location of the injury. Some of these include cerebral hemorrhages, subarachnoid hemorrhages, intraventricular hemorrhages, subdural hemorrhages or subdural hematomas, and cephalohematomas.
