Abstract
Infants born at the limits of viability present neonatologists in particular and society in general with difficult challenges. Ethical and legal considerations establish a framework for action, although this varies between countries, departments and individuals and shows dynamic changes over time. This brief review includes a vignette telling a familiar story. In this case, the parents ask searching questions and the caring, knowledgeable neonatologist uses up-to-date information to offer empathic and thoughtful guidance – a challenge for all. © 2015 S.
