Abstract
Advances in neonatal care have been responsible for the improved survival of prematurity but have not resulted in decreased morbidity. Once the high-risk infants is discharged from the hospital, his or her many special care needs do not cease. A well-coordinated multidisciplinary approach is essential in the follow-up care of these infants. Special attention must be given to their growth and nutrition, immunization, vision and hearing, and sequelae of illnesses experienced during the neonatal period. The role of pediatrician in helping these infants attain their full physical, neurodevelopmental, emotional, and psychosocial potential by providing optimal care is invaluable.
Key Words: Prematurity , Follow-up
