Kernicterus - Presentation
Historically, the term kernicterus refers to an anatomic diagnosis made at autopsy based on a characteristic pattern of staining found in babies who had marked hyperbilirubinemia before they died. Regions of the brain most commonly affected include the basal ganglia, hippocampus, geniculate bodies, and cranial nerve nuclei, such as the oculomotor, vestibular, and cochlear.
