Growth, neurologic, and ophthalmologic assessments were done in 21 low-birth-weight infants given caffeine for neonatal apnea and in 21 matched control infants. Caffeine significantly decreased the need for and the duration of mechanical ventilation. No difference in growth and development was noted between the control and caffeine-treated infants. A high incidence of cicatricial retrolental fibroplasia was observed in both control (10/21) and caffeine-treated infants (7/18).
