Because approximately 60% of participants monitor and report rates of icterus and lipemia in a manner similar to rates of hemolysis, similar opportunities for improvement exist with these interferences as well.
En esta region existen especies como Amazilia viridifrons, Deltharhynchus flammulatus, Granatellus venustus, Sporophila torqueola, Pheucticus chrysopeplus e Icterus pustulatus que se distribuyen a lo largo de la costa del Pacifico mexicano, pero entran a la Depresion Central de Chiapas por el Istmo de Tehuantepec siguiendo un continuo de tierras bajas y alejandose de la costa de Chiapas para introducirse en el centro del estado (Rios 2006).
Las especies de menor distribucion son Bubulcus ibis, Icterus graceannae, Aratinga wagleri, Athene cunicularia y Glaucidium peruanum.

Jaundice or icterus is a clinical term for yellow discoloration of skin and mucous membrane resulting from tissue deposition of bilirubin, which occurs because of serum hyperbilirubinemia.
Clinical and biological findings recorded at admission were associated with severity (Tables 1, 2) as follows: hypotension, chest auscultation abnormalities, icterus, oligo/anuria, bilirubin >49 [micro]mol/L, creatinine >154 [micro]mol/L, creatine phosphokinase >443 U/L, C-reactive protein >282 mg/L, hemoglobin <12.2 g/dL, lymphocytes <0.49 x [10.sup.9] cells/L, platelets <92 x [10.sup.9]/L, and prothrombin time <68%.

Even when all the previous parameters are within acceptable specifications, the specimen may have inherent patient-specific issues such as excessive icterus, lipemia, or hemolysis.
The difference between this type of interference and other types, such as hemolysis or icterus, is that lipemic specimens consist of suspended particles of VLDL (very low density lipoproteins) and chylomicrons, causing varying degrees of turbidity.
