Abstract

Retinopathy of prematurity is an emerging cause of blindness in Latin America. In 2007, the authors examined 88 consecutive infants in Guatemala City, Guatemala, who met the screening criteria for retinopathy of prematurity; 14 (16%) had either "plus" or stage V disease. The incidence of retinopathy of prematurity in Guatemala City is likely high, and a formal screening program is warranted.
