Abstract

A premature infant with acute necrotizing enterocolitis, Escherichia coli sepsis, and disseminated intravascular coagulation developed spontaneous bilateral hyphemas at 3 days of age. The necrotizing enterocolitis was associated with gas bubbles in the intestinal walls. The anterior chambers of both eyes also contained bubbles of gas, formed possibly by a mechanism similar to those in the intestine.
