Pulmonary thromboemboli after neonatal asphyxia.


Two surviving neonates with pulmonary thromboembolism, diagnosed by ventilation-perfusion lung scan, are described. Both infants had respiratory distress, and one had features consistent with persistent pulmonary hypertension of the neonate. These reports demonstrate that substantive pulmonary emboli can occur in neonates and may not be recognized without an appropriate level of clinical suspicion.
