This article describes a case history of a term infant who developed extreme hyperbilirubinaemia and neurological manifestations of kernicterus during the first postnatal week. Signs of haemolysis (AB0) were found, and in addition the infant suffered from hypernatremic dehydration. The current hypothesis for the development of kernicterus is described.
