Abstract
Newborn infants who for any reason have not received Vitamin K supplementation are at risk of major haemorrhagic complications including intracranial bleeding, due to vitamin K deficiency bleeding (VKDB). We describe a 5 month old exclusively breastfed infant who presented with subdural haemorrhage following a fall from motherís lap and was found to have VKDB. The patient was lost to follow-up and was brought back at 8 years of age with global developmental delay, epilepsy and hemiparesis; CT scan showed left sided encephalomalacia. Health care providers and the public should be aware of this preventable acquired coagulopathy and its potential sequelae, and encourage the uptake of vitamin K at birth.

Key words: Vitamin K deficiency bleeding; Subdural haemorrhage; Long term outcome; Epilepsy; Neuroimaging;
