Sample text

This type of ‘shotgun’ investigation adds to the confusion. A few simple tests of established value should be used. If an abnormality is found it may need to be confirmed by a repeat estimation to show that it is real and not a laboratory error. The tests most useful in the diagnostic work-up of jaundice (Chapter 12) are the serum alkaline phosphatase level and serum transaminase values. An isolated rise in serum unconjugated bilirubin suggests Gilbert’s syndrome or haemolysis. The severity of liver cell damage is assessed by serial measurement of serum total bilirubin, albumin, transaminase and prothrombin time after vitamin K.

An approximate value for the unconjugated (indirect) bilirubin is obtained by subtracting the value for conjugated bilirubin from that for the total bilirubin. These diazo reactions are subject to error and diagnosis should not be based solely upon them. Other more accurate methods for estimation, such as thin layer chromatography, high performance gas liquid chromatography and alkaline methanolysis, are available but are too elaborate to be clinically useful [2]. Inspection of faeces is an important investigation in jaundice.
