Phenobarbitone in neonatal cholestasis


thabit

Recommended Posts

We do not administer phenobarbital in cases of neonatal cholestasis.

In PubMed I found these article in support of our strategy (but literature seems really sparse):

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2324888

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3517284

On the other hand, we may give ursodeoxycholic acid to infant (especially preterms) with cholestasis as a result of long-term TPN.
