Remember

Physiologic steatorrhoea can occur in neonates especially preterm neonates due to low amounts of bile acids.
Treatment is to replace long chain triglycerides in formular with medium chain trig (which do not require bile acids for digestion).

Do not confuse with CF which will show other features like meconium ileus, family history etc.
