MENA NANNIG, Patricia  and  DIAZ CARNOT, Marcela. Nutritional factors on retinopathy of prematurity. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2011, vol.109, n.1, pp.42-48. ISSN 0325-0075.

Retinopathy of prematurity is a complication affecting very low birth weight infants; it is produced by numerous factors. We review nutritional and growth aspects associated with larger or lesser incidence and severity of retinopathy. This information would allow a better prediction of risk and, a clinical management to minimize visual damage.
