Showing 1 Abstract.

the aim of the study is to report the importance of the link between intracranial bleeding (ICB) and biliary atresia in neonates. Nowadays, the incidence of bleeding secondary to vitamin K deficiency has well-decreased, thanks to systematic vitamin K prophylaxis in neonates. However, ICB remains a severe complication of Vitamine K deficiency, with a high mortality rate and possible neurological disabilities. Biliary atresia (BA) is a life-threatening condition in neonates, commonly diagnosed in the first 2 months of life, based on jaundice, cholestasis, pale-colored stools and dark urine. Occasionally, BA can be revealed later (25 to 65 days after birth), with severe symptoms such as intracranial, nasal or gastrointestinal bleedings. Read More
