Abstract

In the presence of severe hyperbilirubinemia in Crigler-Najjar syndrome Type II, a fetus is at risk for kernicterus. A 34-year-old woman, gravida 4, para 1, with Crigler-Najjar syndrome Type II was treated with phenobarbital administration following phototherapy during each of 2 pregnancies. Both infants were healthy and developed normally.
