Intraventricular hemorrhage in full-term neonates is rare; it may develop without any clinical signs. Its cause is not fully understood although some risk factors have been identified. A higher index of suspicion would ensure earlier diagnosis and treatment, which might reduce the rate of severe complications. We describe 2 cases in full-term neonates.
