<< Jaundice in the Emergency Department: Meeting the Challenges of Diagnosis and Treatment

Points & Pearls Excerpt

  • Jaundice has a broad differential. It can result from a multitude of hepatic and hematologic pathologies, including obstructive process, hepatocellular process, or hemolytic/hematopoietic process.
  • The history and physical examination are particularly important in narrowing the differential for jaundice.
  • Studies have shown that clinical estimates of serum bilirubin have shown poor interrelater reliability. Skin examination alone is insufficient in judging serum bilirubin levels.
