Neonatal Jaundice

Neonatal jaundice or neonatal hyperbilirubinemia is yellowing of the skin and other tissues of a just-born infant. A bilirubin level of more than 85 μmol/l (5 mg/dL) leads to a jaundiced appearance in neonates whereas in adults a level of 34 μmol/l (2 mg/dL) is needed for this to occur. In newborns, jaundice is detected by blanching the skin with pressure applied by a finger so that it reveals underlying skin and subcutaneous tissue. Jaundiced newborns have yellow discoloration of the white part of the eye, and yellowing of the face, extending down onto the chest.

Neonatal jaundice can make the infant sleepy and interfere with feeding. Extreme jaundice can cause permanent brain damage from kernicterus.
