One fullterm infant whose clinical feature initially was that of necrotizing enterocolitis eventually developed intussusception. The symptomatology of these two conditions is strikingly similar, and when they coexist, recognition of a complicating intussusception is difficult. The pathogenic relationship between necrotizing enterocolitis and intussusception remains obscure. When a presumptive diagnosis of necrotizing enterocolitis is made but the infant's clinical course varies from that expected, other diagnoses, such as intussusception, must be considered.
Key Words: Necrotizing enterocolitis; Intussusception
