Intraoperative neonatal liver hemorrhage usually results in exsanguination and death. The parenchyma of a neonatal liver is fragile, and the capsule is very thin, unlike that in the pediatric and adult patient. This renders the treatment of a neonatal liver fracture almost universally unsuccessful. The current report describes two cases of successful management of intraoperative neonatal liver hemorrhage during surgery for necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC).
