The Late Hemorrhage of the newborn is a little known entity, which is why we present the case of an infant of 2 months admitted at the Pediatric Center Albina R Patino, with the late diagnostic of Late Hemorrhage of the newborn. The importance lies in the complications that this entity brings and is a disease that is preventable with the administration of 1 mg of vitamin K intramuscular in the newborn.
