Abstract

Meconium peritonitis can have a wide range of presentations. This report discusses two cases that have recently appeared in our neonatal intensive care unit. The first report discusses the case of a meconium pseudocyst in a preterm infant. The second case reports on a newborn baby with a healed bowel perforation during the prenatal period. Finally, a brief discussion of meconium peritonitis is also included.
