Epidemiology and Demographics

  • The prevalence of jaundice varies among patient populations.
  • In infants born at term, 60% will develop jaundice in their first-week life. This rises to 80% in preterms. [1]. 5-10% of neonates will require being admitted for the treatment of pathological jaundice. [2]
  • Causes of jaundice also vary with age groups. In newborns, immature hepatic conjugation, hemolysis, and certain congenital disorders are top causes while Hepatitis A infection is a cause seen more in older children.
  • Death rate is 0.28 per 1 million live births. [3]

Age

  • Patients of all age groups may develop Jaundice.
  • It is more commonly observed in newborns and the elderly populations. [3]

Gender

  • Jaundice has no known gender predilection.

Race

  • There is no known racial predilection for Jaundice.
