Crigler-Najjar syndrome


Crigler-Najjar syndrome
a genetic disease in which the liver enzyme glucuronyl transferase, responsible for dealing with bilirubin, is absent. Large amounts of bilirubin accumulate in the blood, and the child becomes progressively more jaundiced. The only treatment is a liver transplant, without which life expectancy is usually less than two years. [F. Crigler (1919– ) and V. A. Najjar (1914– ), US paediatricians]
