Jaundice is common in new born babies. It is the key sign of many disorders of the liver and gall bladder. It can develop suddenly or gradually.


Jaundice may occur when the flow of bile from the liver, through the biliary system to the intestine, is blocked. The bile stagnates in the liver, which in turn means that the yellow pigment bilirubin, flows back in to circulation.

  • Obstrtuctive Jaundice: Is caused by gallstones. It usually happens when the bile ducts are blocked and bile can not pass into the intestines.
  • Haemolytic Jundice: Occurs when too much bilirubin is produced by the breakdown of red blood cells.
  • Liver damage, as a result of hepatitis or chronic malaria may also contribute to jaundice. Alcoholism and poisons are rare causes. Jaundice is very common in healthy newborn babies, because of an immature liver.
