This session will discuss a step-wise approach that all pediatric providers should view as critical to differentiating infants with physiologic or benign jaundice from those with more concerning cholestatic conditions, including biliary atresia. Emphasis will be placed on early identification of biliary atresia as a potentially life-saving prospect. Multiple risk factors for delay in diagnosis will be reviewed, including early hospital discharge of the newborn, inadequate follow-up of persistent jaundice, false reassurance by the appearance of pigmented stool, fluctuating serum bilirubin levels, and misdiagnosis of human milk-associated jaundice.
