A case report of a 920 g infant developing a small intestinal obstruction following therapy for congestive cardiac failure is presented. Although the causation was thought to be milk curd obstruction, subsequent analysis revealed high concentration of calcium and phosphate in the stools. The possible pathogenesis is discussed in relation to the inspissated milk syndrome.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
