Enterocolitis is the inflammation and infection of the small and large intestine. This disease is most commonly seen within the first 2 weeks of a premature infant's life. The cause of enterocolitis is unknown, but it has a death rate approaching 25%. Doctors treat enterocolitis by removing air and fluid from the infant's intestines and stomach through a tube and replacing their food supply with intravenous fluids. Antibiotics are administered, and surgery to remove the dead tissue may be required. If the infant responds well to the medication and treatment, they should make a full recovery within 10 days.
