Abstract
We have experienced a case with acute fulminant hepatitis induced by Herpesvirus homin-us. The patient, 11day-old male baby, was admitted with the chief complaints of poor sucking and jaundice for 3 days duration. On adimission, we performed bacterial cultures, liver function tests, blood coagulation test, TORCH study and routine hematologic studies. During these studies, bleeding tendency was n-oticed at the blood sampling sites. The patients took and fulminant course and expired about 3hrs. after admission despite of vigorous ressucitations. Electronmicroscopic examination of the liver necropsy tissue showed Viral particles in the nuclei of hepatocytes which was considered as Herpesvirus hominus.
