The article discusses the history and diagnosis of an eleven-month-old male infant with congenital cytomegalovirus infection, whose primary teeth were green with hypoplastic enamel. The infant has a serum bilirubin concentration of 156 micromol per liter after one hour of delivery. At six years old, permanent teeth erupted with green pigmentation on the molars. Green pigment in the molars was bilirubin that was incorporated into enamel and dentin during matrix formation.
