The risk factors included intrauterine growth retardation (n=24), multiple pregnancy (n=22), hyperbilirubinemia
(n=74), blood exchange because of hyperbilirubinemia
(n=7), sepsis (n=52), hypoglycemia (n=2), use of aminoglycoside and glycopeptide (n=99), use of furosemide (n=27), mechanical ventilation therapy (n=37), polycythemia (n=12), prenatal asphyxia (n=2), respiratory distress syndrome (n=45), chronic lung disease (n=11), surgery for retinopathy of prematurity (n=8) and hearing deficit in the mother or father (n=7).
Several studies have found an increased risk of hyperbilirubinemia
in late-preterm infants (Sarici et al.
A Multiracial Malay, Chinese, and Indian infants' study, (7) showed that the Bilicheck[R] is not an alternative to measuring serum bilirubin in infants with hyperbilirubinemia
Only 2% of patients had grade 3 diarrhea, and only 2% had grade 4 hyperbilirubinemia
Rebound bilirubin measurement is not required for hyperbilirubinemia
regardless of the background attributes of newborns.
A In 2004, the American Academy of Pediatrics established a practice guideline for the determination of hyperbilirubinemia
in term infants.
In 1994 and subsequently in 2004 the Provisional Committee on hyperbilirubinemia
of American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) published a "practice parameter" and developed an algorithm dealing with the evaluation and treatment of hyperbilirubinemia
in healthy term newborns7-9.
There was no difference between the two groups in the primary composite outcome of neonatal death and complications known to be associated with maternal hyperglycemia, nor did individual rates of complications (neonatal hypoglycemia, hyperbilirubinemia
, birth trauma, and elevated cord-blood C-peptide levels) differ significantly, Dr.
Writing about hteir work in the American Academy of Pediatrics, they say that their study is one of six in this issue to explore the topic of bilirubin and hyperbilirubinemia
In this case report, a newborn who developed indirect hyperbilirubinemia
due to incompatibility of E antigen, which is one of the minor blood groups, is presented because of the rarity of such cases, and minor blood group incompatibilities due to anti-E are reviewed.
We aimed to define if there is any relationship between second trimester serum markers and neonatal severe hyperbilirubinemia
to protect the neonates from its neurological damage.
The panel includes tests for total serum bilirubin, albumin, direct bilirubin, and glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) on a single cartridge, making it the first comprehensive, rapid and near-patient testing solution for hyperbilirubinemia
Gilbert syndrome (GS, MIM #143500) is characterized by fluctuating mild, unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia
<85 [micro]mol/L and is caused by mutations in the bilirubin uridine diphosphate (UDP)-glucuronosyltransferase gene ( UGT1A1 ).
The dose-limiting toxicities at 50 mg/m2 vosaroxin were hyperbilirubinemia
and neutropenia (both Grade 4); at 34 mg/m2 vosaroxin, 1 of 6 patients experienced a DLT of Grade 4 mucositis.
PDM is important with regards to complications as macrosomy, increasing risk for intrauterin death, congenital malformation, hyperbilirubinemia
, polistemia, hypocalcemia.
