In the clinic of Professor Zárate of Buenos Aires, we have given particular attention to the study of meningeal hemorrhage in the new-born. Dr. Maldonado Moreno1 has investigated the causes, effects and mechanism of these ruptures and their consequences: meningeal hemorrhages. But he has not been able to contribute facts of any importance as regards the symptoms, diagnosis and treatment of this hemorrhage, as he has not had the opportunity of observing cases of lengthy survival.
In the last four years, we have had the opportunity of following thirteen cases in which the survival was longer than twenty-four hours, and in six the recovery has been definite without sequelae. To these cases must be added nineteen still-born children or those in which death had occurred before twenty-four hours. In such cases the clinical diagnosis could not be made, and we have only the facts of the necropsy.
