PMID:  4037854     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Two preterm infants with peak serum bilirubin concentrations of 270 mumol/l and 200 mumol/l, respectively showed improvement in the wave peak latencies of the auditory and visual evoked potentials after exchange transfusion. The implications of this observation and the use of evoked potential recording in neonatal jaundice are discussed.
