28 Possible Causes for Weight Loss in Neonatal Period

  • Neonatal Hyperbilirubinemia

    loss during the neonatal period.[] UGT1A1, SLCO1B1 and SLCO1B3 polymorphisms become risk factors in neonates showing 10% or greater body weight loss during the neonatal period.[] Statistical analysis revealed that maximal body weight loss during the neonatal period is the only independent risk factor for the development of neonatal hyperbilirubinemia[]

  • Baraitser-Winter Syndrome 1

    See Heritability: Autosomal dominant inheritance, Autosomal recessive inheritance AKA: Baraitser-Winter Syndrome type 1, Fryns-Aftimos Syndrome, Cerebrooculofacial Lymphatic Syndrome, Pachygyria, Mental Retardation, Epilepsy, and Characteristic Facies, BARAITSER-WINTER SYNDROME 1; BRWS1, BRWS1, Iris Coloboma With Ptosis,[…][]

  • Acrocyanosis

    loss a loss of 5% to 10% of birth weight occuring in the early neonatal period with a regain in approximately 10 days unequal eye movements (crossing) owing to immature ciliary[] […] in darker pigmented infants the mass of cells following fertilization that resembles a mulberry the newborn or the first 4 weeks of extrauterine life normal physiological weight[]

  • Fructose

    The three infants had normal birth weights and experienced no complications during the neonatal period.[] The patient subsequently developed sensorineural hearing loss and early-onset cognitive impairment, despite compliance with the monitoring and treatment of hypoglycaemia.[]

  • Dehydration

    There were positive correlations between serum Na levels and weight loss, hospital stay, admission age, admission to neonatal unit after discharge, serum urea levels, and[] The normalization period of Na levels was significantly longer (21.7   8.8 versus 29.3   17.8 hours, p   0.03), and Na reduction rate was faster in group 2 (0.41   0.3 versus[]

  • Costello Syndrome

    In contrast, the neonatal period is characterized by failure to thrive, feeding difficulties, and eventually weight loss.[]

  • Central Diabetes Insipidus

    The diagnosis of CDI is rarely made during the neonatal period, especially in VLBW newborns, because of the difficulty in detecting elevated diuresis.[] Persistent hypernatremia, usually accompanied by hyperthermia despite abundant fluid supply, weight loss and low urine osmolality are important signs of alert.[]

  • Syphilis

    Under the PMTCT program, 2163 APOs had been averted during the 15-year period, including 852(39.4%) early fetal loss/stillbirth, 356(16.4%) neonatal death, 190(8.8%) prematurity[] […] or low birth weight, and 765(35.4%) clinical evidence of congenital syphilis.[]

  • Growth Retardation

    Examination may reveal: Poor maternal weight gain or even weight loss during pregnancy. Fundal level is lower than that corresponds to the period of amenorrhoea.[] The neonate shows signs of dysmaturity as: underweight, dry wrinkled skin, meconium stains the foetus, placenta umbilical cord as well as the amniotic fluid.[]

  • Nephrogenic Syndrome of Inappropriate Antidiuresis

    Affected males are often symptomatic in the neonatal period with a lack of weight gain, dehydration and hypernatremia but mild phenotypes may also occur.[] The X-linked form is due to inactivating mutations of the vasopressin 2 receptor gene leading to a loss of function of the mutated receptors.[]
