MONTES, Sendy  and  CARRASCO, Carlos. Necrotizing enterocolitis complicated with portal pneumatosis in a premature newborn: Case report. Rev Med Hered [online]. 2014, vol.25, n.3, pp.158-161. ISSN 1018-130X.

Necrotizing enterocolitis (NE) is a serious condition that affects particularly pre-term newborns and it is associated with high morbi-mortality. NE is the most frequent gastrointestinal emergency condition in neonatal intensive care units. We present a case of an 8-week child who presented severe NE with portal pneumatosis confirmed by clinical and surgical procedures.

Keywords : Necrotizing enterocolitis; abdominal radiography; infant; newborn; sepsis; ultrasonography.
