This review summarises the treatment of preterm infants in Denmark, which is dependent on the collaboration between several medical specialities. The problems of the preterm infants are related to the degree of prematurity, and the treatment should counter these issues, reduce complications related to prematurity and ensure growth and development. Developmental problems are the most common sequelae. There seems to be a dose-effect association between the whole spectrum of gestational age and developmental problems with the highest risk among the extremely preterm children. However, even in this group, most of the children will develop normally.
