Prognosis of Neonatal Jaundice
The prognosis for Neonatal Jaundice is generally good with photo therapy being an effective treatment.
Usually babies with physiologic Neonatal Jaundice do not require any medical treatment and recover completely with photo therapy. There are no known long -term effects of either the disease or the treatment. If the Jaundice is due to any other cause, then the underlying cause must be treated.
