Crigler-Najjar disorder is a rare genetic disorder identified by elevated degrees of bilirubin in the blood (hyperbilirubinemia). Bilirubin is a yellow-colored waste item that is developed when the liver breaks down old or worn out red blood cells (hemolysis). Individuals with Crigler-Najjar disorder create hyperbilirubinemia in the lack of hemolysis. The elevated bilirubin degrees occur considering that affected people do not have a certain liver enzyme required to break down (metabolize) bilirubin. The trademark finding of Crigler-Najjar disorder is persistent yellowing of the skin, mucous membranes and whites of the eyes (jaundice). There are 2 kinds of this condition: Crigler-Najjar disorder kind I, characterized by an almost full absence of enzyme task and severe signs; and also Crigler-Najjar syndrome type II, identified by partial enzyme activity as well as milder signs and symptoms. A lot of cases of Crigler-Najjar syndrome are acquired as autosomal recessive characteristics and also are due to mistakes or disruptions (anomalies) of the UGT1 gene positioned on chromosome 2.
