  • To the Editor .— The recent report1 of a woman with conjugated hyperbilirubinemia who delivered an infant with negligible concentrations of bilirubin in serum at birth echoes an earlier report of a similar phenomenon. In 1973, Lipsitz et al2 described a pregnant patient with a total plasma bilirubin concentration of 24 mg% (13 mg% direct bilirubin) on the day of delivery and whose male infant showed a cord blood total bilirubin concentration of 10.4 mg%, of which only 0.6 mg% was direct… CONTINUE READING
