This case demonstrates an uncommon presentation of necrotizing enterocolitis, a gastrointestinal emergency. Characterized by bacterial invasion, inflammation, and destruction of the bowel, necrotizing enterocolitis typically occurs in extremely preterm infants born at a gestational age less than 28 weeks. While less than fifteen percent of necrotizing enterocolitis cases occur in term infants, these cases are generally associated with other conditions such as congenital heart disease. This uncommon case of an otherwise healthy full-term infant presenting with bloody stools and diagnosis of necrotizing enterocolitis represents the importance of maintaining a broad differential diagnosis when evaluating neonates.
