Disease Information Added By: Drugs that interfere with metabolism of bilirubin or that may displace bilirubin from albumin could increase the risk of hyperbilirubinemia or kernicterus.

Prolonged unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia associated with breast milk and mutations of the bilirubin uridine diphosphate-glucuronosyltransferase gene. Phenotypic Series Toggle Dropdown. Excessive jaundice result in kernicterus can cause complications such as brain damage. Crigler—Najjar syndrome or CNS is a rare inherited disorder affecting the metabolism of bilirubin, a chemical formed from the breakdown of the heme in red blood cells.

The same condition may be present in unusually high frequency in Yemenite Jews Sheba, This syndrome occurs only in neonates; therefore, basic principles of safe neonatal anesthesia must be applied. This is an alphabetically-sorted list of medical syndromes.

Please enter User Name Password Dtiscoll A number sign is used with this entry because of evidence that transient familial neonatal hyperbilirubinemia can be caused by heterozygous or homozygous mutation in the uridine diphosphate-glucuronosyltransferase gene UGT1A1; on chromosome 2q It is defined as a mild unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia drisfoll from a mutation in the promoter of the UDP-glucuronosyltransferase gene allelic to the mutation for Crigler-Najjar syndrome type I.

Member feedback about List of syndromes: Overview A rare condition characterized by severe jaundice at birth and caused by the presence of a gestational hormone that passes from the mother to the driscol across the placenta but eventually disappears after birth. Search Advanced search allows to you precisely focus your query. Phototherapy is used to treat the hyperbilirubinemia.


Arias and Gartner ; Newman and Gross The authors suggested that breastfeeding jaundice may be an infantile and inducible phenotype of Gilbert syndrome. Each of the remaining nine 5′ exons may be spliced to the four common exons, resulting in nine proteins with different N-termini and identical C-termini.

Other causes of hyperbilirubinemia should be excluded. Kernicterus has not been observed, probably because severe jaundice does not develop until the seventh to tenth day, when the infant’s blood-brain barrier has become relatively impermeable to unconjugated bilirubin Arias et al.
