Neonatal jaundice, also known as hyperbilirubinemia, occurs when the blood has excessive levels of bilirubin, sometimes causing the skin and eyes to turn yellow. Hyperbilirubinemia is extraordinarily common (Table 1), particularly in the developing world. In most cases, infants with jaundice improve in a few days without intervention. However, if not treated, severe cases can cause encephalopathy and kernicterus (a type of brain damage), leading to deafness and other forms of disability. © 2006 IEEE.
