Unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia is an important cause of neonatal morbidity. Here we report a case of acute bilirubin encephalopathy attributed to neonatal lupus. Transient hematologic manifestations including anemia, leukopenia, and thrombocytopenia are commonly encountered in neonatal lupus but isolated hemolytic anemia leading to severe hyperbilirubinemia in an otherwise asymptomatic newborn is an unusual presentation of neonatal lupus and to our best of knowledge not yet reported in published literature.
