    Author(s): David TalbertDavid Talbert

    Introduction: Subdural haemorrhages and effusions are collections of blood or tissue fluid that appear in infants between the lining of the skull (Dura Mater) and the brain surface, with an incidence of 21 in 100,000. Method: This study is further analysis of data in a case report of a dichorionic-dizygotic twin pregnancy in which one twin (Twin-A) presented three months postnatally with seizure. The other twin (Twin-B) developed normally and so became a control. The twins showed similar head growth up to 24 weeks but subsequently the rate of head growth of Twin-A exceeded that of Twin-B. Later, from 29 weeks, Twin-A’s femur growth began to lag Twin-B’s, but abdominal growths remained matched. Postnatally Twin-A’s head growth rate continued to exceed that of Twin-B until at 3 months postnatal Twin&nd.. Read More»
