Kernicterus in Older Children and Adults
Kernicterus represents a metabolic encephalopathy afflicting newborns and children with unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia. Also occurring are several types of hyperbilirubinemia with both unconjugated and conjugated present in the serum.
KeywordsBilirubin Level Unconjugated Bilirubin Glucuronyl Transferase Unconjugated Hyperbilirubinemia Bilirubin Conjugate
