Abstract

Total parenteral nutrition has been used in the treatment of more than 100 children with gastrointestinal illnesses, including 90 under the age of 6 months. The incidence of complications has been reduced markedly as experience was acquired. Total parenteral nutrition has been especially valuable in patients with intractable diarrhea syndrome and it has been used successfully in the management of infants with overwhelming systemic infections.
