  • Crigler-Najjar Syndrome Type 1

    Physiological neonatal jaundice may peak at 85–170 µmol/l and decline to normal adult concentrations within two weeks. Prematurity results in higher levels.[] 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.[]

  • Neonatal Hepatitis

    Infants with this condition are usually jaundiced. Jaundice that is caused by neonatal hepatitis is not the same as physiologic neonatal jaundice.[] 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.[]

  • Jaundice

    This is called “physiologic” or normal neonatal jaundice. Most infants have this pattern so no testing is needed.[] Early detection and management of jaundice can prevent kernicterus.[] Neonatal jaundice is also referred to as neonatal hyperbilirubinemia and physiologic jaundice of the newborn.
