There are many potential causes of hyperbilirubinemia, which most of us recognize as a baby that appears yellow or "jaundiced." Common causes include:
- physiologic (normal slow start to life outside the womb);
- breast milk (refusal of breast milk leading to dehydration);
- hemolysis (Rh disease); and
- inadequate liver function (problem with the liver).
- bilirubin induced neurological dysfunction (BIND);
- bilirubin induced encephalopathy;
- kernicterus; and
- cerebral palsy.
