Abstract

Records of the only children's hospital equipped to perform exchange transfusions in West Berlin were used to identify all 29 non-hemolytic healthy term newborns with total serum bilirubin between 20 and 30 mg/dL, 16 of whom were available for follow-up neurological examination according to Touwen. Compared to 18 case controls with bilirubin <12 mg/dL, jaundiced children scored significantly worse only on the choreiform dyskinesia scale.
