Abstract

Aims: The aim was to investigate conjugated and unconjugated hyperbilirubinaemia in association with urinary tract infection (UTI) in young infants. Methods: Fifty infants aged 44 days (p=0.007) were unlikely to have unconjugated hyperbilirubinaemia. Conclusions: Infants with UTI may present with unconjugated hyperbilirubinaemia in the early stage. After 6 weeks, it is always conjugated hyperbilirubinaemia and is frequently associated with anaemia, elevated hepatic amino-transferases and E. coli infections.
