Sample text

The normal newborn is deficient in antioxidants such as vitamin E, catalase, and superoxide dismutase. Bilirubin is a potent antioxidant and peroxyl scavenger and may protect the newborn from oxygen toxicity in the first days of life. Approximately 8–10% of newborns develop excessive hyperbilirubinemia (TSB > 17 mg/dL), and 1–2% have TSB above 20 mg/dL. Extremely high and potentially dangerous TSB levels are rare. Approximately 1 in 700 infants have TSB higher than 25 mg/dL, and 1 in 10,000 have TSB above 30 mg/dL.

Some IUGR infants have hyperinsulinemia that persists for a week or more. C. Other Causes of Hypoglycemia Hypoglycemia occurs in disorders with islet cell hyperplasia. These include the Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome, erythroblastosis fetalis, genetic forms of hyperinsulinism, inborn errors of metabolism such as glycogen storage disease and galactosemia, and endocrine disorders such as panhypopituitarism and counterregulatory hormone deficiency. Hypoglycemia also occurs, probably secondary to stress, in infants with birth asphyxia, hypoxia, and bacterial and viral sepsis.

The most severe form of Rh isoimmunization, erythroblastosis fetalis, is characterized by life-threatening anemia, generalized edema, and fetal or neonatal heart failure. Without antenatal intervention, fetal or neonatal death may result. The cornerstone of antenatal management is transfusion of the fetus with Rh-negative cells, either directly into the umbilical vein or into the fetal abdominal cavity. Phototherapy is usually started in these infants upon delivery, with exchange transfusion given if needed.
