Graphical Abstract:


Background: Neonatal and paediatric encephalopathy can be a diagnostic challenge for clinicians. Potential aetiologies include hypoxic brain injury, stroke, infection, trauma, metabolic and electrolyte abnormalities, autoimmune conditions and drug ingestion. Radiology plays a key role in determining aetiology and, even when normal, directing further assessment.

Conclusion: We present a review of the neuroradiological manifestations of neonatal and paediatric encephalopathies which will aide paediatricians and radiologists in their assessment of children with this condition.

Keywords: Encephalopathy, paediatric neuroimaging, stroke, neonatal, electrolyte abnormalities, trauma.
