Maternal Antiphospholipid Antibodies and Vitreous Hemorrhages in the Newborn: A Case Report

Arch Ophthalmol. 2001;119(6):914-916. doi:

Vitreous hemorrhage in the newborn, first described by Schleich1 in 1890, is a rare occurrence. The differential diagnoses include birth trauma, Terson syndrome, disseminated intravascular coagulation, galactosemia,2 and retinopathy of prematurity. Nonaccidental trauma, such as shaken baby syndrome, is a diagnosis of exclusion, which must be considered in all cases.
