Aim: Neonatal bilirubin-induced neurologic dysfunction can present with a wide spectrum of symptoms from mild neurologic impairment to severe acute bilirubin encephalopathy. In this study, we aimed to determine the risk factors of unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia among hospitalized infants with serum total bilirubin levels >= 25 mg/dL and evaluate the effects of high serum bilirubin levels due to hemolysis on neurodevelopmental outcome at postnatal between 18 and 24 months.
