Abstract

Total serum bilirubin (TSB) levels ≥ 30 mg/dL are rare but potentially hazardous. A better understanding of their incidence, causes, and outcomes could help inform preventive efforts. We identified infants born ≥ 35 weeks' gestational age from 1995-2011 in Kaiser Permanente Northern California (n = 525409) and examined the medical records of infants with a TSB ≥ 30 mg/dL to determine etiology and the occurrence of acute bilirubin encephalopathy
