Dear authors, dear editors,
Thanks for this excellent focus on visual abilities of infants following HIE.
More than three decades ago, at a time when brain imaging of newborns with HIE was limited to ultrasound and CT scanning, we have published impairments of visual functions at an early age (Early Hum Dev 1989;20:267-279 and Neuropediatrics 1990;21:76-78) .
We could do so using standardized, outpatient methods of visual assessment.
Further use of this relatively simple tools could and should be part of assessments of infants with HIE, in particular when (diffusion weighted) MRI indicates involvement of visual tracts.
With kind regards,
