• Nodular regenerative hyperplasia of the liver is a rare condition that primarily affects adult patients. We report a case of this disease in a 4-month-old infant with coexisting globoid cell leukodystrophy (Krabbe's disease). Based on an analysis of this case and a review of the literature, we concluded that the two disorders were probably unrelated.
