Abstract

Necrotizing enterocolitis is an acute disease that primarily affects premature neonates of low birth weight, and has a very high morbidity and mortality. The incidence in adults is significantly less, with lower mortality rates. Of those who survive, many are left with complications related to short gut syndrome. We report 4 cases of necrotizing enterocolitis all of whom underwent early surgical intervention and had good recovery, followed by a review of the literature on the subject.
