Advances in perinatal and neonatal care in recent years have resulted in dramatic improvements in the rate of intact survival of preterm infants. As a result, neonatologists have focused on the new challenge of bringing about similar advances for the tiniest infants who are born at or near the current limits of viability. Although these tiny infants comprise only a small proportion of all births, the ravages of prematurity make them by far the most challenging group of infants who require our attention in the neonatal intensive care unit.
