Abstract

Perinatal mercury exposure has neurodevelopmental consequences, which may be worse in preterm infants. In our cohort (N = 60), maternal and infant prenatal exposures were low, but infant levels increased during hospitalization and correlated only with duration of parenteral nutrition. A non-negligible exposure resulted from the nutrition preparation on equipment shared with adult preparations.
