Abstract

Neuroanatomical abnormalities have been linked to maternal cocaine abuse since Chasnoff et al's report of cerebral infarction in a single full‐term offspring of a cocaine‐abusing mother. Neurosonography was performed on 18 full‐term offspring of cocaine‐abusing mothers and 19 age‐matched controls to look for possible abnormalities. There were no cases of infarction or intraparenchymal or intraventricular hemorrhage. There were, however, 6 patients with abnormalities among the cocaine‐abusing group: 5 patients with unilateral or bilateral germinal matrix cysts and 3 patients with subtle cystic or predominantly cystic areas in watershed zones consistent with periventricular leukomalacia. © 1994 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
