It is vital for the survival of the neonate that birth should not occur until the fetal organ systems are sufficiently mature. Nowadays, infants with birth weight 750 g or less lead to ethical dilemmas concerning the value of treating extremely preterm infants. We report the survival of a 390 g girl born in the 25 and 3/7 week of gestation. In the last years, problems associated with extreme prematurity have become more clearly defined improving the outcome of these babies.
