dc.description.abstractNecrotising enterocolitis (NEC) is a severe gastro-intestinal disorder, predominantly seen in hospitalised low-birth-weight newborn infants. It is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Infants with NEC require parenteral nutrition and intravenous antibiotics with prolongation of hospitalisation. Severe cases require surgical resection of necrotic bowel wall with the attendant problems of the short gut syndrome.' NEC places an enormous burden on resource-poor institutions.
