833 Possible Causes for Kernicterus

  • Hereditary Spherocytosis

    Among neonates listed in the USA Kernicterus Registry, HS was the third most common underlying hemolytic condition after glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency and ABO[] […] beginning of congenital hemolysis may be essential for managing neonatal anemia and hemolytic icterus, identifying those at high risk for severe hyperbilirubinemia, irreversible kernicterus[] Neonates with severe hyperbilirubinemia caused by hereditary spherocytosis are at risk for kernicterus and should be treated with phototherapy and/or exchange transfusion.[]

  • Transient Familial Neonatal Hyperbilirubinemia

  • Fetal Erythroblastosis

    […] to “possible kernicterus”.[] Immaturity in a live born baby with erythroblastosis fetalis carries an increased risk of unfavorable outcome, particularly with respect to kernicterus.[] If the disease is not as severe and the fetus survives, the newborn develops icterus during the first day of life, that may be as severe as to induce kernicterus.[]

  • Neonatal Sepsis

    […] and perinatal mortality Stillbirth Perinatal mortality Neonatal pathology nonrelated to prematurity, birth asphyxia or infection Congenital anomalies in liveborn infants Kernicterus[] […] aminoglycoside (usually gentamicin ) or a third-generation cephalosporin (usually cefotaxime — ceftriaxone is generally avoided in neonates due to the theoretical risk of kernicterus[]

  • Crigler-Najjar Syndrome Type 1

    This case report describes a young adult with Crigler-Najjar syndrome type II in whom kernicterus developed after a laparoscopic cholecystectomy.[] This procedure was complicated by kernicterus 1 week after hospital discharge. He also developed Klebsiella bacteremia and sepsis, requiring a brief ICU stay.[] No kernicterus was observed. The total bilirubin started falling at 10 days after cell infusion.[]

  • Neonatal Jaundice

    Prevention of kernicterus and the parents of infants and children with kernicterus (PICK) organization. J Perinatol 2005; 25 (4): 227–228. 8.[] SUMMARY Kernicterus (bilirubin encephalopathy) is a disease entity with a very high rate of mortality in neonates.[] In addition, effective phototherapy is crucial if we are to make kernicterus a "never-event."[]

  • Physiological Neonatal Jaundice

    Berardi A, Lugli L, Ferrari F et al (2006) Kernicterus associated with hereditary spherocytosis and UGT1A1 promoter polymorphism.[] Free unconjugated bilirubin can cross the blood brain barrier of the baby and cause neuronal damage which is called “kernicterus” ; the prognosis for such babies isn't very[] The penetration of large amounts of bilirubin in brain tissue can develop kernicterus. This disease leads to mental retardation, deafness and seizures.[]

  • Cooley's Anemia

    Avoid in newborns due to the potential for an increase in free bilirubin, jaundice, and development of kernicterus.[]

  • Neonatal Hepatitis

    This is known as kernicterus Sepsis (blood infection) Skin gets affected such that bruising might occur easily. There could also be a bleeding tendency.[] Complications Kernicterus.[] Phototherapy is not normally carried out for conjugated hyperbilirubinaemia, because this does not cause kernicterus.[]

  • Exchange Transfusion

    […] and clinical evaluation for acute bilirubin encephalopathy (ABE) has been recommended for predicting the risk of kernicterus.[] OBJECTIVE: To quantify the risks for CP and CP consistent with kernicterus that are associated with high TSB levels based on the 2004 American Academy of Pediatrics exchange[] Due to its critical morbidity called "kernicterus", severe neonatal hyperbilirubinemia causes which lead to exchange transfusion, should be clarified.[]
