Two case reports of patients with neonatal enterocolitis present the topic of Food Protein-Induced Enterocolitis Syndrome (FPIES). FPIES is a type of food allergy which is not mediated by IgE and which has a severe presentation. Its incidence and prevalence are unknown. Clinical suspicion, diagnosis, and timely management are important in light of likely development of severe complications which can even lead to death
