Necrotizing enterocolitis can be a life-threatening disease, if court and treated early the chances of survival are increased. In rare cases, the bowel may become damaged and narrowed, leading to intestinal blockage, It’s also possible for malabsorption to occur. This is a condition in which the intestine is unable to absorb nutrients.

This is more likely to develop in babies who have had a section or more of their intestine removed.

Your child’s specific outlook depends on their overall health and the severity of the disease, among other factors. It is important to remember that not all cases are the same.
