If you haven’t listened to our podcast before, each week we have a case-based discussion about a medical topic to help you study for the pediatric medicine board exam.

Today’s Case:

An infant was born weighing 1,250g at 30 weeks gestation due to premature rupture of membranes. Pregnancy complications included maternal cocaine use and intrauterine growth restriction. As feeds were introduced with donor breast milk, the infant appeared to have increased discomfort with feeds. The baby went on to develop necrotizing enterocolitis, also known as NEC, at 20 days of life. Which of the following is NOT a risk factor for the development of NEC?

  1. Pre-term birth
  2. Very low birth weight (defined as < 1,500g)
  3. Intrauterine growth restriction
  4. Maternal cocaine use
  5. Feeding with donor breast milk
