Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC)
Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) is a serious medical condition that affects premature babies or those with a compromised immune system. It is characterized by inflammation and necrosis of the intestines, which can lead to a range of complications, such as perforation, sepsis, and even death. The exact cause of NEC is unknown, but several factors have been identified as potential risk factors, including prematurity, low birth weight, formula feeding, and bacterial colonization of the gut. Early detection and treatment are crucial in managing NEC and improving the chances of survival.
