Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Background: Neurodevelopmental outcome of very premature infant can be associated with a high rate of cerebral palsy. Aim: To assess the impact of very preterm birth on neurological outcome at the age of two years. Methods: Retrospective study of all cases of very premature infants born at less than 33 weeks of gestational age, during the years 2005 to 2007. Neurodevelopmental outcome is reported. Results: During the study period, the very premature infant rate was 1.5 %. Acomplete information about neurological outcome at the ageof two years, was obtained in 60 cases.Eight infants (13.4%) showed major handicap (cerebral palsy) and four others infants developped neurosensoriel difficulties. Conclusion: The incidence of neurosensoriel handicap in our population seems relatively high. A strong effort must be made for identification of risk factors of neurodevelopmental disability.
