Hemoglobinemia and renal failure from an intracerebral hematoma simulating a vein of Galen aneurysm.
A case of an intracranial hematoma in a neonate causing the release of free hemoglobin into the plasma is presented. No previous such case has been described. The relationship between hemoglobinemia and the occurrence of acute renal failure in this neonate is discussed, with comments on the possible etiological role of the hemoglobinemia.
