Phototherapy-induced hypocalcemia has been postulated to result from a decline in serum melatonin levels. The present observational study evaluated the effects of phototherapy on serum calcium and melatonin levels, and assessed their correlation, if any. Eighty-nine neonates with a total serum bilirubin levels of 14.1 ± 2.8 mg/dL were recruited at ...

BackgroundNeonatal hyperbilirubinemia is a common clinical condition that requires medical attention in newborns, which may develop into acute bilirubin encephalopathy with a significant risk of long-term neurological deficits. The current clinical challenge lies in the separation of acute bilirubin encephalopathy and non-acute bilirubin encephalop...

Major hepatectomy can result in post-hepatectomy hepatic failure (PHHF) and therapeutic plasma exchange (TPE) can be used as a salvage procedure for liver support. We herein present a case of 69-year-old male patient with perihilar cholangiocarcinoma who was successfully managed with salvage TPE. Preoperative portal embolization was performed to re...

Giant cell hepatitis (GCH) is characterized by large and multinucleated (syncytial) hepatocytes in the context of liver inflammation. Infantile GCH is typically associated with autoimmune hemolytic anemia in the absence of any other systemic or organ-specific autoimmune comorbidity. The etiology is unknown; concomitant viral infections (as potentia...

Abstract Objective: To determine the possible risk factors associated with hepatic dysfunction during open-heart surgeries. Methods: After excluding 71 patients, 307 patients with possible low and moderate cardiac risk who underwent either coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) (n=176) or valve repair surgery (mitral valve, mitral and aortic v...

The aim of this study is to explore the association between umbilical cord blood (UCB) vitamin A levels and late preterm infants morbidities. We conducted a prospective cohort study of 208 late-preterm infants(from 34 0/7 to 36 6/7 weeks gestational age) between January 1, 2014 and June 30, 2015. UCB specimens were collected shortly after birth, an...

Background Indirect hyperbilirubinemia is frequently encountered during neonatal period. Although it has different causes, in some cases it can’t be explained. Previous studies have illustrated that jaundice could be a major sign of urinary tract infection (UTI) in neonates. Aim of the work We aimed to determine the association between UTI and sign...

Dubin-Johnson syndrome (DJS), an autosomal recessive disorder presenting with conjugated hyperbilirubinemia, is not associated with progression to chronic liver disease (CLD). Next-generation sequencing, application of bioinformatics pipeline, and segregation analysis were performed on 8 members of a consanguineous family with DJS and CLD. A novel ...
