Özet

Introduction: Methemoglobinemia is a rare serious hematological disorder, which is one of the causes of cyanosis in childhood, requiring emergency treatment. It may occur in congenital and acquired circumstances. Congenital methemoglobinemia can be a result of a genetic defect in erythrocyte metabolism and hemoglobin structure.
