Hemolytic Disorders Causing Severe Neonatal Hyperbilirubinemia.

A shortened erythrocyte life span, because of hemolytic disorders, is a common cause of extreme neonatal hyperbilirubinemia. Clinical and laboratory examinations can frequently identify the underlying cause of extreme neonatal hyperbilirubinemia. In this article, several tests, techniques, and approaches have been reviewed, including red blood cell morphology assessment, end-tidal carbon monoxide quantification, eosin-5-maleimide flow cytometry, as well as next-generation DNA sequencing using neonatal jaundice panels.
