Neonates with Lower Gastrointestinal Bleeding

Author(s): Christians William

In clinical practice, neonates with Lower Gastrointestinal Bleeding (LGIB) are occasionally seen. LGIB in neonates is caused by a variety of circumstances, and the babies are usually treated according to the underlying pathology that causes LGIB. Although the majority of these bleeding episodes are self-limited, many newborns with LGIB may require immediate medical attention, including surgery. The goal of this review paper is to examine the etiology, epidemiology, clinical symptoms, and management strategies of LGIB in newborns using pertinent literature.
