MedLine Citation:
PMID:  8887114     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The authors describe a case of early neonatal death of a full-term infant who had respiratory distress and anemia after fetal distress during labor. Postmortem examination disclosed mediastinal compression by a large fresh hemorrhage into the left lobe of the thymus. Massive thymic hemorrhage is an extremely rare but sometimes lethal occurrence; it may represent a manifestation of early-onset hemorrhagic disease of the newborn.
