Prevention is indeed better than cure: the successful management of neonatal haemochromatosis

Audrienne Sammut, Jogesh Kapadia, Shyam Das, Bharat Vakharia


In this case report, we present a growth-restricted preterm infant with a family history of neonatal haemochromatosis who presented with deranged liver function at birth. Aggressive in utero treatment along with exchange transfusion and immunoglobulins in the first few days of life prevented worsening of liver failure and resulted in rapid improvement in liver function.
