Abstract

Following discharge from the hospital, many infants who have survived acute necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) remain at significant risk for continuing morbidity. Follow-up care of these infants is increasingly becoming the responsibility of the primary care physician. This article reviews the more common long-term medical and neurodevelopmental sequelae identified in NEC survivors and presents a practical approach to the clinical follow-up of these infants.
