The new practice guideline on the treatment of extremely premature infants is discussed. The guideline advises to actively treat all children born after 24 0/7 weeks of gestation. Although there is some evidence supporting this view, it is argued that the guideline is incomplete as decisions about the treatment of such newborn infants can only be made after discussion with the parents. The guideline should also have taken into account the ethical and legal aspects of the issue. It is therefore concluded that the guideline itself is immature and premature.
