Hi, how is this baby doing? Sounds like there are multiple problems, although they probably have a common (syndromatic) cause.

Did you come further in genetic/syndrome diagnostics? intestinal signs and symtoms of ileus , do you now know the cause (malrotation, obstruction, vascular/ischemic etc)?

Yes really i still have this baby in my unit on mechanical ventilator 😔... suddenly the colonic gases appeared and intestinal sounds could be auscultated after 7 days ..your recommendation is absloutley right we have also brain atrophy in brain US.. high arched palate with clenched fists ..its matched with syndromatic etiology ...but do you suggest neuromuscular disease ?
