Many different pathophysiologic conditions can affect the neonatal intestinal tract and ultimately require surgical intervention. The symptomatology is primarily that of bowel dysfunction and obstruction. A thorough understanding of these disease processes is necessary of the managing physician. With this knowledge, a systematic course of resuscitation, evaluation, and treatment can be instituted, usually with predictably gratifying results for patient, family, and physician alike.
