PMID:  16493435     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Despite the prevalence of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency in African Americans, the disorder maybe often overlooked as a diagnosis in the absence of overt signs of hemolysis in neonates with hyperbilirubinemia. We present a case report of anemia and prolonged hyperbilirubinemia due to G6PD deficiency in the absence of hemolysis in dichorionic, triamniotic, preterm triplets of African-American descent.
