In most cases the cause of neonatal hyperbilirubinemia
was undetermined (19/26 (73%) of readmitted babies compared to 32/38 (84%) in "in-hospital" babies (p = 0.17)).

The classical controlled clinical trial reported by Mollison and Walker (8) and subsequent clinical experience has established exchange transfusion as the standard treatment for preventing bilirubin encephalopathy in severe neonatal hyperbilirubinemia
. Exchange transfusion is the most reliable and rapid method of removing bilirubin from the body.
Most cases of neonatal hyperbilirubinemia
are physiological and total serum bilirubin level less than 205 [micro]mol/L (12 mg/dL) usually has no serious consequences .
Our study also has few cases of these clinical conditions as a cause of neonatal hyperbilirubinemia
. Gartner LM (2001)  stated in his study that insufficient caloric intake resulted from maternal and/or infant breast feeding difficulties may also increase unconjugated serum bilirubin concentration.

test methods for G6PD mentions that 5 mL (not 50 mL) and 10 mL of blood are required."
(NHB), one of the most common problems pediatricians encounter in their clinical practice, remains a topic of interest and debate (1,2).
