Neonatal liver (storage) but not heart (nonstorage) tissue iron concentrations were reduced by 60% at autopsy in 15 newborn infants who had gestations complicated by uteroplacental insufficiency because of maternal hypertension or Potter syndrome. The hepatic iron reductions in term and preterm infants, and with either antecedent condition, were similar. (J PEDIATR 1995;127:308-11).
