What is Necrotising Enterocolitis (NEC)
NEC is an inflammation of the bowel (intestines) that may damage the bowel to a variable extent.
It usually causes a temporary intolerance of milk feeds but at its worse the bowel may be so damaged that parts of it actually die. NEC may affect just a small part of the bowel or on occasions the whole bowel may be affected.
