Abstract: Mortality after hospital discharge in this study cohort was extremely high. However, despite marked differences in socioeconomic conditions and tertiary care facilities, the handicap rates were comparable with recent studies from developed countries, and some of the predictors of handicap, eg, periventricular leukomalacia and porencephaly, were also similar.
