In previous pages, we have examined how the more common complications of prematurity, involving the heart, the lungs, the digestive system and the brain, are diagnosed. This section discusses some other common problems of prematurity, specifically:</p><ul><li>infection </li><li>anemia of prematurity </li><li>jaundice </li><li>apnea of prematurity </li><li>retinopathy of prematurity </li><li>osteopenia of prematurity </li></ul><p>Please keep in mind that although information about these conditions and the various body systems they affect is presented on separate pages of this site, these conditions are rarely diagnosed and treated in isolation. In other words, conditions that affect one part or system of the body directly, often have important implications for another part or system. </p>https://assets.aboutkidshealth.ca/akhassets/mom_looking_at_preemie2_EN.jpgDiagnosis of other conditions in premature babies
