Brain hemorrhage

Salma took her brain CT scan in Hadassah Hospital yesterday due to her first seizure episode and it showed some hemorrhage that was compressing her brain. I could not see those CT images but medical staff commented that it could be a “subdural” hemorrhage.

There is a thin capsule-like structure that envelopes the brain and we call it dura. Premature or newborn babies could have hemorrhage just beneath the dura and it is  called the subdural, in this case, a subdural hemorrhage. It is the most common brain-bleed of newborn babies.

Medical staff did an MRI scan of Salma’s brain to examine whether it is improving or not. Please pray for Salma’s swift recovery from her heart condition and brain bleeding.
