Fetal Brain Damage from Bacterial Infections

Next Image Title

Artist Name

Illustrations from a series on how bacteria enter a fetus to damage its brain. The purpose was to enable a lay audience to understand ways in which different bacteria do their damage. Some cross the blood-brain barrier to destroy brain tissue directly by infection while others cause vasculitis in the arteries. Both result in ischemia and edema but look different on CT scans. Understanding this is critical for a correct diagnosis that will lead to the proper course of treatment.
