In brief: Neonatal jaundice
Phototherapy is the primary treatment in neonates with unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia.
This therapeutic principle was discovered rather serendipitously in england in the 1950s and is now arguably the most widespread therapy of any kind (excluding prophylactic treatments) used in newborns.

In brief: Phototherapy
In neonates, the primary treatment is light therapy (phototherapy).
The jaundice is diagnosed by the high level of a substance called unconjugated bilirubin in the newborn’s blood. There is no standard amount of time the infant should be treated with phototherapy -- it’s all dependant on the baby’s bilirubin level falling below a certain threshold (13-14 mg/dL).
