Dr,
Nice article explaining the factors that determine the colour of the skin. I have a patient of mine – a baby girl – aged 2 years and 9 months who has been diagnosed with Crigler-Najjar syndrome (type 1) since birth.  Her entire body is yellow including the face and her eyes are bright yellow. She has an higher level of conjugated bilirubin in the blood (around 38 while the normal value is 2 to 14). She was fine till the age of 2 years talking, running, playing etc. But suddenly the bilirubin level increased and now she cannot even sit. She is also not talking like before. She talks only very few words. She takes normal food and has no problem with her appetite. She is thin. Can u suggest a suitable treatment for her!
