SANCHEZ-PEREZ, María del Carmen; CRUZ-RAMIREZ, María Mercedes; MUNOZ-LEDO RABAGO, Patricia  and  CORREA-RAMIREZ, Alicia. Social and environmental factors of premature triplets’ neurodevelopment. Case report. Rev. sanid. mil. [online]. 2018, vol.72, n.5-6, pp.344-350.  Epub Aug 23, 2019. ISSN 0301-696X.

The premature birth epidemic is the result of genetic, social and environmental complex interactions. As smaller and lower-weight children survive, sequelae increase. This paper characterizes the environmental and social factors related to neurodevelopment as a component of an early intervention program at the National Pediatrics Institute. We present the case report of an assisted multiple pregnancy with similar genetic and environmental factors, but biologic and dyadic interaction differences, and report the neurodevelopmental evolution over the first year of life.

Keywords : Premature newborn; neurodevelopment; disability; early intervention; social and environmental factors; nurture.
