abstract

  • We conclude that PRBC-related NEC exists. Transfusion-related acute gut injury is an acronym we propose to characterize a severe neonatal gastrointestinal reaction proximal to a transfusion of PRBCs for anemia. The convergence at 31 weeks postconceptual age approximates the age of presentation of other O(2) delivery and neovascularization syndromes, suggesting a link to a generalized systemic maturational mechanism.
