SPONTANEOUS INTESTINAL perforations (SIPs) have been documented to occur in as many as 8.4 percent of very low birth weight (VLBW) newborns.1 Gastrointestinal (GI) perforations first appeared in the literature in 1825 when Siebold described a gastric perforation in an estimated 34-week-gestational-age infant.2 Thelander in 1939 described the first cases of spontaneous perforation in three stillborn infants as perforations proximal to the ileocecal valve.3
