Diazoxide, hyperinsulinism and NEC

Dear colleagues,

I am a neonatologist who would be grateful for any help from your members.

We have a term baby with hyperinsulinism who was treated with diazoxide. A week later the baby developed bowel distension and bile stained vomits: at operation he had necrotising enterocolitis of the large intetines. I would be grateful to know if any of you have similar experiences.

kind regards

Dr Guan Koh

Hi Guan

Wondering if you got any replies from your initial query. We had a similar experience recently of a kid transferred in to us.

Like to hear more about your experience
