  • 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.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This procedure was complicated by kernicterus 1 week after hospital discharge. He also developed Klebsiella bacteremia and sepsis, requiring a brief ICU stay.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] No kernicterus was observed. The total bilirubin started falling at 10 days after cell infusion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

There could also be a bleeding tendency.[dovemed.com] Complications Kernicterus.[patient.info] Phototherapy is not normally carried out for conjugated hyperbilirubinaemia, because this does not cause kernicterus.[patient.info]
