Abstract: Packed-Red Blood Cell (PRBC) transfusion has been associated with
subsequent necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC). We report a documented case of a
premature infant presenting with severe intravascular hemolysis and NEC after
PRBC transfusion as symptoms of underlying Clostridium perfringens
infection in the bowel.
