Severe hyperbilirubinemia in a glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase-deficient preterm neonate: could prematurity be the main responsible factor?



Severe hyperbilirubinemia in a glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase-deficient preterm neonate: could prematurity be the main responsible factor?



Fetal Diagnosis and Therapy 24(4): 440-443



We report on a premature infant with glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency and severe hyperbilirubinemia. In this patient, all known potential hemolytic agents were excluded and no findings of hemolysis were observed. The crucial role of prematurity in the pathogenesis of this type of jaundice is discussed.
