A retrospective clinical description of 7 newborn infants with adrenal haemorrhage. All patients were born at term by vaginal delivery. Their birth weights ranged between 2,550 and 3,950, and only one was small for gestational age. Two patients had Apgar scores less than 6 at one minute and both were born by forceps delivery. The first symptom of adrenal haemorrhage was an abdominal mass. Diagnosis was confirmed by ultrasonography demonstrating a right adrenal echogenic mass which displaced the Kidney which disappeared along a few and all patients survived.
