Atypical allergic colitis in preterm infants.

Author information

Neonatal Unit, Birmingham Maternity Hospital, Birmingham, England.


Two atypical cases of colitis due to cow's milk protein intolerance (CMPI) are reported, affecting preterm infants. One developed a toxic dilatation of the colon and responded well to a casein hydrolysate based feed. The second presented insidiously and failed to tolerate a casein hydrolysate, but responded well to a chicken-based modular feed.
