Abstract: A case of early neonatal severe bleeding and persistent hypoglycemia with a fatal outcome is reported. The autopsy examination revealed the features of neonatal hepatic necrosis. Further study by the electron microscopy indicated the presence of herpes type particles in the nucleus and cytoplasm of the remaining liver cells. Serological study of the maternal blood, post partum, revealed positive reaction to Herpes simplex virus type 2 at low titer. It is believed that intrauterine herpes infection was responsible for the severe hepatic damage manifesting in complex clinical findings.
