Hello and welcome to HCM,
A history of fever
and high bilirubin
levels indicated hepatitis
leading to jaundice
The further management will depend on which type of bilirubin is raised.
There are two types of bilirubin- direct and indirect.
They are increased in different disease processes.
Direct bilirubin is increased in diseases of biliary tract e.g. obstruction of the biliary tract, damage to liver
cells by infections, inflammations etc.
Indirect bilirubin is raised in conditions where there is increased breakdown of RBCs.
So, after determining which type is raised the further management can be planned.
Consult your doctor for further relevant investigations and management.
Thanks and take care.
