240 Possible Causes for Bilirubin Encephalopathy

  • Neonatal Hyperbilirubinemia

    Prolonged unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia can result in acute bilirubin encephalopathy and eventually develop into chronic bilirubin encephalopathy (kernicterus).[] Case definition was: infants 34 weeks gestation with a peak total serum bilirubin 450 μmol/L and or clinical evidence of bilirubin encephalopathy.[] Excessive levels of hyperbilirubinemia places the infant at risk for bilirubin encephalopathy.[]

  • Neonatal Jaundice

    In all relevant cases of the 24 with bilirubin encephalopathy the Sephadex test was strongly positive.[] Prolonged unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia can result in acute bilirubin encephalopathy and eventually develop into chronic bilirubin encephalopathy (kernicterus).[] CONCLUSIONS: Severe NNJ and bilirubin encephalopathy are still problems in Turkey.[]

  • Hereditary Spherocytosis

    Hereditary spherocytosis is a condition that affects red blood cells.

Most newborns with hereditary spherocytosis have severe anemia, although it[…][]

  • Thalassemia Minor

    Abstract Infants on this island are known to have higher incidences of neonatal hyperbilirubinemia and alpha-thalassemia minor than Caucasians. In order to investigate the correlation between these two conditions, we collected a total of 110 newborns with alpha-thalassemia minor delivered at the National Taiwan[…][]

  • Sepsis Neonatorum

    Sepsis neonatorum, or neonatal sepsis, is an invasive infection that occurs in newborns. Two classes of the disease are distinguished: early-onset sepsis, which usually strikes within the first 24 hours after birth, and late-onset sepsis, which occurs after the fourth day of life.

It may result in severe anemia, which may require regular blood transfusions. There are three forms of beta thalassemias: beta[…][]
