Alpha-fetoprotein(aFP) levels were studied in 20 neonatally hyperbilirubinemic children and 20 controls matched for gestational age. The mean aFP value of cord blood (119+58.2산g/ml) with hyperbilirubinemic children was significantly greater than that(79.6±40.8/zg/ml) for the control infants(P<0.001). At the age of 3 and 5 days the mean serum aFP in hyperbilirubinemic children were higher compared with the control group, the difference was not statistically significant. No correlation was found between serum bilirubin and aFP concentration in hyperbilirubinemic children. This test can be used as a screening procedure to detect infant at high risk for hyperbilirubinemia.
Key Words: Cord plasma Alpha-fetoprotein, Hyperbilirubinemia
