Abstract

Jaundice is common in the newborn infant who is unique because of a limited ability to clear bilirubin from the plasma. In most babies it is physiological and benign. In some, however, jaundice is a sign of a serious underlying disorder. The challenge to the physician is to distinguish normal physiology from pathological jaundice.
