CONCLUSION: More than 25% of infants with a TSB of > 400 micromol/l (23.4 mg/dl) scored abnormal or suspect at 4 months of age and half of these infants already showed irreversible neurological symptoms. All infants who scored abnormal or suspect on the IMS with bilirubin levels between 400 and 500 micromol/l (23.4 and 29.2 mg/dl) had haemolytic disease or were premature.
