Abstract: A review of clinical and pathological data on 10,000 consecutive deliveries revealed that the incidence of unexpected and intractable asphyxia at birth despite adequate resuscitation was 0.24%. Lung hypoplasia appeared to be the underlying non-viable condition in 22 out of 24 infants. Attention is drawn to congenital neuromuscular disorders which were found to be the cause of lung hypoplasia in at least 4 out of 22 infants. Some helpful hints for diagnosis are given which may contribute to the final decision making.
