Abstract

We describe a neonate with anemia, thrombocytopenia, and hyperbilirubinemia secondary to hemolytic disease of the newborn. After phototherapy for hyperbilirubinemia, the neonate developed a photodistributed eruption with high serum and urine porphyrin levels. This transient porphyrinemia resolved at 1 month.
