BACKGROUND: Neonatal hyperbilirubinaemia is one of the commonest causes of hospital visit in the neonatal period. When severe, it is a leading cause of irreversible neurological and musculoskeletal disability. Prompt recognition and timely interventions are imperative for a drastic reduction in complications associated with severe hyperbilirubinaemia in newborns. METHODS: We report a 4-year descriptive and longitudinal study to determine the causes, clinical presentations and long-term outcomes in newborns admitted for severe neonatal jaundice...

The bronze baby syndrome is an infrequent dyschromia resulting from phototherapy in newborn babies with neonatal jaundice. Even though the common phenotype has been described in patients with direct neonatal hyperbilirubinemia secondary to cholestasis, several cases of patients with indirect neonatal hyperbilirubinemia who have managed to reverse it have been reported, as well as patients with isolated hyperbilirubinemia.Currently, the physiopathology of this condition is still a subject of controversy and, therefore, there is a lack of clear conducts for its correct diagnosis and treatment...

BACKGROUND: Exchange transfusion and phototherapy have traditionally been used to treat jaundice and avoid the associated neurological complications. Because of the risks and burdens of exchange transfusion, intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg) has been suggested as an alternative therapy for alloimmune hemolytic disease of the newborn (HDN) to reduce the need for exchange transfusion. OBJECTIVES: To assess the effect and complications of IVIg in newborn infants with alloimmune HDN on the need for and number of exchange transfusions...

BACKGROUND: Hyperbilirubinaemia is a major cause of neonatal morbidity. Early identification of those infants most at risk might allow the development of targeted primary preventative therapy and follow-up. The objective of this study was to assess whether arterial umbilical cord bilirubin (aUCB) level at delivery predicts the development of neonatal jaundice in term deliveries. METHODS: Retrospective analysis of hospital biochemistry records identified term deliveries with recorded aUCB...

BACKGROUND: Neonatal jaundice is a common problem. We evaluated the utility and best cut-off values of 24-and 48-hour transcutaneous bilirubin indices (TcBI) in predicting subsequent significant hyperbilirubinemia and evaluated various associated maternal and fetal risk factors. METHODS: TcBI at 24 and 48 hours and serum bilirubin levels at 72 hours of age were obtained for healthy, term, appropriate for gestational age neonates. Neonates with prematurity, birth weight <2500 g, ABO or Rh incompatibility, onset of clinical jaundice <24 hours, clinical suspicion of septicemia, positive pressure ventilation at birth, admission in neonatal intensive care unit and contraindications for BiliChek were excluded...

OBJECTIVE: In the present study, we investigated the effects of promoter polymorphism and an exon-1 mutation (G71R) in the UGT1A1 gene in neonates with unexplained hyperbilirubinemia and direct Coombs-negative [DC(-)] ABO incompatibility. METHODS: Two-hundred term neonates in their first week of life and without additional icterogenic factors were included in the study. Neonates with a serum total bilirubin (STB) level ≥17 mg/dL constituted the hyperbilirubinemia group (n = 100), while the control group comprised healthy neonates with a STB level <12...

Many different blood group systems, such as Rh, ABO, Kell, Kidd, Duffy, MNS, have been reported as causes of hemolytic disease of the newborn. Hemolysis due to minor blood group incompatibility in the fetus or newborn has been determined in isolated case reports. Here, we report a case of a patient who had received red cell transfusion due to severe Rh c and E incompatibility, leading to hemolytic anemia with heart failure. The mother and the baby were grouped B and B, respectively, both being positive for RhD antigen...

BACKGROUND: Jaundice is the commonest neonatal ailment requiring treatment. Untreated, it can lead to acute bilirubin encephalopathy (ABE), chronic bilirubin encephalopathy (CBE) or death. ABE and CBE have been largely eliminated in industrialised countries, but remain a problem of largely undocumented scale in low resource settings. As part of a quality-improvement intervention in the Neonatal Care Units of two paediatric referral hospitals in Myanmar, hospitals collected de-identified data on each neonate treated on new phototherapy machines over 13-20 months...

REVIEW
Manuel Mendizabal, Marcelo Oscar Silva
Acute liver failure is a critical medical condition defined as rapid development of hepatic dysfunction associated with encephalopathy. The prognosis in these patients is highly variable and depends on the etiology, interval between jaundice and encephalopathy, age, and the degree of coagulopathy. Determining the prognosis for this population is vital. Unfortunately, prognostic models with both high sensitivity and specificity for prediction of death have not been developed. Liver transplantation has dramatically improved survival in patients with acute liver failure...
