We report on a premature infant with glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency and severe hyperbilirubinemia. In this patient, all known potential hemolytic agents were excluded and no findings of hemolysis were observed. The crucial role of prematurity in the pathogenesis of this type of jaundice is discussed.
