Abstract

The frequency of the respiratory distress syndrome (R.D.S.) increased progressively with decreasing gestational age in premature infants whose mothers were not addicted to heroin. No cases of R.D.S. were noted among 33 premature infants born to heroin-addicted mothers. The apparent absence of R.D.S. in this group of infants cannot at present be explained.
