Treatments for Congenital nonhemolytic jaundice

  • Management of jaundice in neonates is influenced by the cause of the jaundice, as well as the gestational age and general health of the infant. The aim of treatment is to manage underlying causes and avoid kernicterus, or brain damage, resulting from high bilirubin levels. Treatments for congenital non-haemolytic jaundice include:
    • Phototherapy
    • Exchange transfusion - where phototherapy has failed to control jaundice and bilirubin levels are critically high
    • Intravenous immune globulin - for conditions such as Rh and ABO incompatibility
