AIM: To study the growth of infants with isolated Robin sequence (IRS) considered being severe cases during the first 6 months of life. METHODS: Twenty infants with IRS, considered being severe cases were followed in a pure prospective longitudinal study. Feeding facilitating techniques were applied to all infants after airway disobstruction and a hypercaloric diet was offered. Weight and length were measured at birth and at 2-month intervals until 6 months of age. RESULTS: The infants with severe IRS under study showed impaired weight and length growth from birth to 6 months of age when the values were compared to the NCHS2000 reference. CONCLUSIONS: Malnutrition persisted in infants with severe IRS during the first 6 months of life despite the use of special diet and techniques developed for clinical recovery of this anomaly.
