Core Tip Osteopenia of prematurity remains an important challenge in neonatal medicine due to continuing increased survival of preterm infants. The risk is higher with long-term diuretics or corticosteroids. It is important when managing such infants to regularly monitor biochemical markers for evidence of abnormal bone turnover and inadequate mineral intake. Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry is increasingly used in research for assessing bone mass density in neonates. Prevention and early detection of osteopenia are key to the successful management of this condition and oral phosphate supplements should be started as soon as it is feasible.
