In brief: Pre mature babies

Necrotizing enterocolitis nec frequantly seen low birth weight premature babies, exact cause is not clearly known, likely due to lack of oxygen to intestine due low flow of blood, sepsis, intestinal mucosa, not fully developed or damage to it by high concentration of milk ( reasons for breast feedings).
