CONCLUSION: At present we have no tools for ensuring certain identification of individuals with increased vulnerability to bilirubin toxicity. Relaxation of guidelines which have been proven safe through prolonged use should therefore be undertaken only in an atmosphere of increased vigilance. Guidelines that allow for a range of therapeutic and diagnostic options underline the need for careful assessment of each case on its individual merits.
