Hyperbilirubinemia An elevated level of the pigment bilirubin within the blood. A sufficient elevation of bilirubin produces jaundice. Some degree of hyperbilirubinemia is extremely common right after birth, especially in premature babies. Treatment of hyperbilirubinemia in a period of a newborn involves the risk of the skin to special lights and removal of serum from the blood and replacing with solutions freed from bilirubin (exchange transfusion). The prevalent causes of conjugated hyperbilirubinemia are extrahepatic obstruction and antiseptic cholestasis of the biliary tract, with the latter preventing bilirubin from getting into the intestines. Viruses, alcohol, and autoimmune disorders are the foremost common causes of hepatitis.
