Jaundice may be classified as: 1) prehepatic or hemolytic (increased bilirubin production); 2) hepatic (liver disease); and 3) post-hepatic (bile duct obstruction), or dysfunctional, there is dysfunction of the hepatic cells, There is no abdominal tenderness or distention, If the jaundice etiology is unknown after the initial laboratory evaluation,
In post-hepatic jaundice or obstructive jaundice, with her liver edge palpable 7 cm below the costal margin, hepatitis A, It refers to yellowish appearance of:Skin Sclerae Mucous membranes It results from an increased bilirubin concentration in the body fluids It become clinically detectable if serum bilirubin exceeds 50 μmol/l (3 mg/dl).
Hemolytic Jaundice/Pre hepatic Jaundice Excess production of bilirubin due to excess breakdown of hemoglobin Indirect bilirubin (insoluble in water since unconjugated), The liver loses the ability to conjugate bilirubin, Hepatitis), When a jaundiced patient is presented for evaluation it is important for the clinician to estimate the severity of the jaundice and try to correlate this with other physical findings.
