Although hyperbilirubinemia is extremely common among neonates and is usually mild and transient, it sometimes leads to bilirubin-induced neurologic damage (BIND). The auditory pathway is highly sensi...
Phototherapy is the standard therapeutic approach for neonatal hyperbilirubinemia. Oxidative effects of phototherapy may have potential harms, including DNA damage. Unconjugated bilirubin (UCB) might ...
Neonatal hyperbilirubinemia is common in Asia, and the importance of genetically determined conditions has been recently recognized. The aim of this study was to assess the clinical utility of genetic...
Hemolysis can be an important cause of hyperbilirubinemia in premature and term neonates. It can result from genetic abnormalities intrinsic to or factors exogenous to normal to red blood cells (RBCs)...
To evaluate the efficacy of pre-exchange transfusion albumin priming in neonates with non-hemolytic hyperbilirubinemia.
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...
Neonatal Glucose-6-phosphate Dehydrogenase(G6PD) Deficiency is one of the significant reason for neonatal hyperbilirubinemia and even irreversible bilirubin encephalopathy.The neonates may...
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...
Delayed cord clamping (DCC) has been a subject of extensive research for the last couple of years. Based on published data, numerous neonatal benefits have been suggested such as increased...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether HIV patients on Atazanavir who have Hyperbilirubinemia have different outcomes from those without Hyperbilirubinemia.
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.
