CONCLUSIONS: Audit of the six cases presented indicates that measures are necessary in both the primary and secondary healthcare sectors if the risk of kemicterus is to be avoided. Screening may be considered, but in order to identify the problems it would first be reasonable to perform a larger prospective study in which audit is performed on all newborn infants, born at term and near-term, who develop a plasma bilirubin concentration above the exchange transfusion limit.
