Wide Ranging Problems of Preterm Infants

Children born after a pregnancy of 24 weeks suffered from neuropsychiatric and somatic diagnoses as they grow into adulthood. 

Neuropsychiatric problems include Developmental Disorder, Attention-Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder, and Autism. Some other problems like Asthama, postnatal growth restriction, and Cerebral Paresis also affected preterm children. Such children should be taken care of and should be provided resources during adolescence and late in life. 

Doctors and other health professionals need to be aware of the many health and developmental problems that affect these children. Health care services also need resources to identify their long-term treatment and support needs at an early stage. The study was conducted in a national collaboration among researchers focusing on newborns (neonatology) and medical conditions relating to the eye (ophthalmology), by the University of Gothenburg.
