Abstract
Symptoms of infection, specific infections, antibiotic course and hospitalizations were evaluated prospectively by using monthly questionnaires after initial hospitalization in 73 low birth weight (LBW) infants (less than 1751 g) and a subgroup of 19 infants with bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) compared with 63 full-term controls matched for age, sex and home locality. The immunoglobulin G, A, M and E levels of the LBW infants were measured at corrected ages of 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 months. The LBW infants, the subgroup with BPD and their controls had similar frequencies of infectious symptoms and episodes of infection. Dyspnoea and lower respiratory tract infections often caused by respiratory syncytial virus (RBV) were more frequent and more severe among LBW and especially BPD infants compared with controls. Male sex, a large family and day-care were significant risk factors for illness. The IgG levels of the LBW infants were subnormal at the corrected age of 1 month, but otherwise immunoglobulin levels were normal. The results suggest that LBW infants and especially those with BPD are prone to lower respiratory tract infections and should be considered candidates for immunoprophylaxis against RBV. In order to reduce morbidity home care is preferable to day-care.

Abstract
One hundred consecutive low-birth-weight infants (less than 1751 g) were randomized equally into "dry" and "control" groups. Fluid administration in the dry group followed the schema 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100 and 120 ml/kg/day during the first week and 150 ml/kg/day until aged four weeks and that of the control group 80, 100, 120 and 150 ml/kg/day during the first week and 200 ml/kg afterwards. The diagnosis of bronchopulmonary dysplasia was based on typical roentgenographic findings, clinical symptoms and a supplemental oxygen requirement at age one month. Mean weight loss was greater in the dry group than in the control group (8.8 vs 6.2%), but there was no difference in weight between the groups at the age of four weeks. Twelve of the patients died, one in the dry group and 11 in the control group (five died during the first 24 h and the remaining six between three days and three months). Twenty-seven subjects in the dry group and 15 in the control group were alive and had no signs of bronchopulmonary dysplasia at age 28 days (p less than 0.05), the numbers at term being 28 and 14, respectively (p less than 0.01). These results suggest that fluid restrictions can reduce the mortality and morbidity of low-birth-weight infants. Infants of this kind, with respiratory distress, show poor tolerance to fluids, especially during the first weeks of life.

Abstract
One hundred consecutive low birth weight (LBW) infants (less than 1751 g) were randomized into a study group having a restricted fluid intake until 4 weeks of age and a control group following the fluid regimen conventionally used in the hospital. Chest X-ray films were examined on admission, at the ages of 3 days, 7 days, 2 weeks and 4 weeks and at 2-monthly visits to the outpatient clinic up to 1 year of age or until the chest examinations were normal. The severity of hyaline membrane disease (HMD) and typical radiological abnormalities of bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) were assessed. Twelve patients succumbed, one in the study group and 11 in the control group. The study group seemed experience less severe HMD than the controls. Fifty-four percent of the former and 32% of the latter were alive and had no radiological signs of BPD at 4 weeks of age (P less than 0.05). The difference between the groups in the cumulative number of normal chest X-ray examinations during the follow up was even more significant. The percentage of normal X-ray films at 1 year of age was 92% in the study group and 72% in the control group. These results suggest that fluid restriction for the first 4 weeks of life can lower the incidence of radiological abnormalities typical of BPD obtained during the 1st year of life in LBW infants. Pulmonary oedema seems to be a significant aetiological factor causing HMD to develop into chronic lung disease.

Abstract
One hundred consecutive low birth weight (LBW) infants (less than 1751 g) were randomized into a study group having a restricted fluid intake until 4 weeks of age and a control group following the fluid regimen conventionally used in the hospital. Chest X-ray films were examined on admission, at the ages of 3 days, 7 days, 2 weeks and 4 weeks and at bi-monthly visits to the out-patient clinic up to 1 year of age or until the chest examinations were normal. The severity of hyaline membrane disease (HMD) and typical radiological abnormalities of bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) were assessed. Twelve patients succumbed, 1 in the study group and 11 in the control group. The study group seemed to experience less severe HMD than the controls. Of the former 54% and 32% of the latter were alive and had no radiographical signs of BPD at 4 weeks of age (P less than 0.05). The difference between the groups in the cumulative number of normal chest X-ray examinations during the follow up was even more significant. The percentage of normal X-ray films at 1 year of age was 92% in the study group and 72% in the control group. These results suggest that fluid restriction for the first 4 weeks of life can lower the incidence of radiological abnormalities typical of BPD obtained during the 1st year of life in LBW infants.
