Retrospective analysis of 27 factors in 80 neonates with necrotizing enterocolitis has enabled us to identify three factors that appear to be of prognostic statistical significance, namely blood pH, platelet count, and the presence of congenital defects. All three factors may be assessed objectively at the time of admission of the patient. Using these factors we have estimated a "probability of death" score for each patient and a high-risk group of neonates has been identified.
