There is little doubt that the field of Neonatology has, and is,
undergoing vast clinical changes as underlying research in all its
background sciencesprogresses in leaps and bounds. One has
also to realise that this progress as in all medical disciplines is
multi-dimensional, and far beyond the simple clinical end-point
expression of progress in neonatal medicine, pharmacology and
surgery. Among these dimensions, the medico-legal aspect, looms
large and over the recent years, has loomed larger still.
