Background: This study examined potential risk factors for and consequences of simple minor neurological dysfunction (SMND), in a group of very low birth weight newborns followed until preschool age. Methods: This is a prospective longitudinal study. Children with a birth weight below 1,500 g were assessed at 4 to 6 years of age. Twenty eight children with a normal neurological examination and 35 children with simple minor neurological dysfunction were included in the final analysis. Risk…

Prevalence and associated factors of minor neuromotor dysfunctions at age 5 years in prematurely born children: the EPIPAGE Study.

TLDR
The high rate of MNDs and their association with an increased risk for learning difficulties justify their screening in case of (even moderate) prematurity, according to gestational age and neonatal age.

MINOR NEUROLOGICAL DYSFUNCTION FROM BIRTH TO 12 YEARS. I: INCREASE DURING LATE SCHOOL‐AGE

TLDR
The hypothesis that the frequency of minor neurological dysfunction (MND) stabilizes around the age of nine years was rejected: extrapolation of the findings to the total GPP population showed that the over‐all rate of MND increased.

Neurodevelopmental Outcome at 5 Years of Age of a National Cohort of Extremely Low Birth Weight Infants Who Were Born in 1996–1997

TLDR
The high rate of cognitive dysfunction suggests an increased risk for learning difficulties that needs to be evaluated at a later age and extended follow-up should be the rule in outcome studies of ELBW infant cohorts to elucidate the impact of immaturity on school achievement and social behavior later in life.

TLDR
The term ‘developmental coordination disorder’ (DCD) in general refers to children with normal intelligence who have poor motor coordination without clear evidence of a neurological pathology, such as cerebral palsy (CP) or muscular dystrophy.

Neurodevelopmental and growth impairment among extremely low-birth-weight infants with neonatal infection.

TLDR
It is suggested that neonatal infections among ELBW infants are associated with poor neurodevelopmental and growth outcomes in early childhood and novel interventions to improve these outcomes can be explored.

Psychiatric disorders and MND in non-handicapped preterm children

TLDR
Very preterm and/or very low birth weight children are at increased risk of persistent psychiatric disorders, especially anxious and depressive disorders, and the development of psychopathology seems to be mediated by MND, decreased verbal abilities and family adversity.

TLDR
Very-low-birth-weight infants with proven early-onset sepsis, necrotizing enterocolitis, and high plasma levels of interleukin-6, interleukain-8, and tumor necrosis factor-&agr; are at high risk for white matter injury.

TLDR
Very preterm children with neuromotor signs, including motor coordination problems, are at risk for neurocognitive impairment, in spite of average intelligence.
