Jaundice In Children

Jaundice In Children Definition

Jaundice in newborns is a condition where increased bile pigment causes yellowish skin and eyes. This is due to a congenital damage in the red blood cells. Infants suffering from this condition may be because of a prenatal mismatch between the Rh factor in their blood and that of their mothers. Jaundice can also be brought about by a temporary enzymatic defect called hyperbilirubinemia.
