Abstract

We cared for four neonates with transient hyperammonemia of the newborn (THAN), all of whom exhibited sclerema during their course. Sclerema is a hardening of the subcutaneous tissues, which gives the tissue a firm, rubber-like quality. This association has not been previously reported, and it may provide a clue to early diagnosis and intervention in THAN.
