At present, it is more common for ultra-premature babies with gestational age less than 25 weeks to survive in foreign countries without obvious sequelae, but there are few reports in China. In this article, a case of a premature infant with a gestational age of 24+1 weeks was successfully treated, but no sequelae were found during follow-up. It is reminded that the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) of tertiary hospitals in China through careful and standardized management, enables children to smoothly pass through the three major barriers of breathing, nutrition, and infection, as well as the subsequent kangaroo care and family participatory management, which can fully realize the Preterm infants aged 24 to 25 weeks survived without obvious defects.
