|Title:||The prevalence of isolated unconjugated hyperbilirubinaemia (Gilbert's syndrome) in subjects attending a health screening programme in Singapore.||Authors:||Gwee, K.A.
|Issue Date:||Dec-1992||Citation:||Gwee, K.A., Koay, E.S., Kang, J.Y. (1992-12). The prevalence of isolated unconjugated hyperbilirubinaemia (Gilbert's syndrome) in subjects attending a health screening programme in Singapore.. Singapore Medical Journal 33 (6) : 588-589. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||We retrospectively studied the prevalence of hyperbilirubinaemia in 1,296 consecutive subjects attending a hospital health screening programme over an eighteen-month period. Sixty-four subjects (5%) had elevated bilirubin levels. Forty-one subjects (3.2%) had isolated unconjugated hyperbilirubinaemia. These subjects probably had Gilbert's syndrome. Recognition of this common benign condition is important to avoid unnecessary investigations.||Source Title:||Singapore Medical Journal||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/133984||ISSN:||00375675|
