Abstract

Evaluation of the newborn with hyperbilirubinemia is an important and commonly encountered problem in all clinical pediatric-based practices. Cholestatic jaundice is always pathologic and warrants prompt assessment. The timely evaluation and directed treatment of any jaundiced newborn are essential to prevent serious metabolic consequences and irreversible hepatic damage.
