Linda S. de Vries trained as a pediatrician and neonatologist in the Wilhelmina Children’s Hospital in Utrecht, the Netherlands. Subsequently she also trained as a pediatric neurologist in Leuven, Belgium. Since 1989 till 2019, she has worked in the department of Neonatology in Utrecht, where she is now an emeritus professor in Neonatal Neurology.
Her research focuses on prediction of neurodevelopmental outcome in high risk preterm and full-term newborns, using neurophysiology and neuro-imaging methods. These at risk children were also seen by her in the follow-up clinic. She has a special interest in neonatal stroke and brain plasticity. She co- authored three books, The, Atlas of Neonatal Brain Sonography; The atlas of amplitude-integrated EEGs in the newborn and Beyond the NICU.
to learn about disorders that may present with neonatal encephalopathy but without predecing hypoxia-ischemia
These 'HIE mimics' can be due to neuromuscular/ genetic/metabolic disorders
Besides a thorough history and clinical examination, neuro-imaging patterns will be discussed of the most common disorders
