The present study was conducted to verify the effect of neonatal jaundice in infants newborns on serum bilirubin concentration level, to achieve this aim, 60 infants patients complained of neonatal jaundice were subjected to the study. The results showed significant (p< 0.005) increase of total and unconjugated bilirubin concentrations in infants patients when compared with those of the healthy infants (after treatment). The evaluation of the sex differences did not exhibit effect significant variation in serum bilirubin concentration of infants patients. The age and treatment, were found to have effect on serum bilirubin concentration level in infants patients of neonatal jaundice.
