Figure 1.
Figure 1. (A) Para-sagittal section through the partly liquefied right-sided adrenal hemorrhage on the day of admission. An examination of vascular flow did not detect any blood flow foci within the hemorrhagic region of the adrenal gland. (B) A follow-up examination performed at 3 days after birth demonstrated a reduction in the size of the right AH. (C) During the examination mentioned in B, it was also found that the left adrenal gland was enlarged (24.0 × 6.0 mm).
