This paper explores the possible intrapartum pathways to neonatal neurologic injury and how some of the science and literature impact on the representation of affected children. In doing so, this paper reviews neonatal neurologic injury in the context of a fetal systemic metabolic acidosis and in the alternate setting where neonatal neurologic injury is not accompanied by a fetal systemic metabolic acidosis.
