Objective The aim of this study is to determine whether a transcutaneous bilirubin (TcB) value obtained within 6 hours of birth (early transcutaneous bilirubin [ETcB]) either alone, or used to calcu...
Objective Hemolytic disease of the newborn (HDN) most commonly occurs in neonates whose mothers carry nonpassively acquired antibodies directed against red blood cell (RBC) antigens. Because affecte...
Hyperbilirubinemia is a common neonatal problem. The present study aimed to investigate the effect of Ursodeoxycholic Acid in reducing indirect hyperbilirubinemia of infants under phototherapy.
Severe jaundice that requires exchange transfusion has become a relatively rare situation today. About 60% of full term neonates and 80% of premature ones will suffer from jaundice within the first we...
Heme oxygenase (HO) is the rate-limiting enzyme in the heme degradation pathway that produces bilirubin. The promoter region of the human heme oxygenase-1 (HMOX1) gene contains a polymorphic (GT)n rep...
The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of 10 mg of oral zinc given daily between days 2 and 7 of life to term or near term neonates with serum bilirubin levels of more than 6...
The purpose of this study is to compare the demographic, metabolic, and genomic characteristics of patients who develop severe hyperbilirubinemia to patients who never developed a signific...
INTRODUCTION Exclusively breastfed infants are at risk of iron deficiency. American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends iron supplementation in exclusively breastfed infants beginning a...
We will use information technology to integrate the 2004 American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines for management of neonatal hyperbilirubinemia with laboratory reporting of newborn biliru...
Some experts recommend that all breastfed babies receive supplemental vitamin D. The purpose of this study is to determine the rate of vitamin D use in breastfed babies, the recommendatio...
A term used pathologically to describe BILIRUBIN staining of the BASAL GANGLIA; BRAIN STEM; and CEREBELLUM and clinically to describe a syndrome associated with HYPERBILIRUBINEMIA. Clinical features include athetosis, MUSCLE SPASTICITY or hypotonia, impaired vertical gaze, and DEAFNESS. Nonconjugated bilirubin enters the brain and acts as a neurotoxin, often in association with conditions that impair the BLOOD-BRAIN BARRIER (e.g., SEPSIS). This condition occurs primarily in neonates (INFANT, NEWBORN), but may rarely occur in adults. (Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, p613)
A form of gram-negative meningitis that tends to occur in neonates, in association with anatomical abnormalities (which feature communication between the meninges and cutaneous structures) or as OPPORTUNISTIC INFECTIONS in association with IMMUNOLOGIC DEFICIENCY SYNDROMES. In premature neonates the clinical presentation may be limited to ANOREXIA; VOMITING; lethargy; or respiratory distress. Full-term infants may have as additional features FEVER; SEIZURES; and bulging of the anterior fontanelle. (From Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, pp398-400)
Softening or loss of brain tissue following CEREBRAL INFARCTION; cerebral ischemia (see BRAIN ISCHEMIA), infection, CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA, or other injury. The term is often used during gross pathologic inspection to describe blurred cortical margins and decreased consistency of brain tissue following infarction. Multicystic encephalomalacia refers to the formation of multiple cystic cavities of various sizes in the cerebral cortex of neonates and infants following injury, most notably perinatal hypoxia-ischemic events. (From Davis et al., Textbook of Neuropathology, 2nd ed, p665; J Neuropathol Exp Neurol, 1995 Mar;54(2):268-75)
A benign familial disorder, transmitted as an autosomal dominant trait. It is characterized by low-grade chronic hyperbilirubinemia with considerable daily fluctuations of the bilirubin level.
