Pediatrics What type of jaundice in neonatal sepsis?

So what type of neonatal jaundice (direct/indirect) can neonatal sepsis present with?

Early-onset neonatal sepsis ---> direct hyperbilirubinemia

Late-onset neonatal sepsis ---> indirect hyperbilirubinemia

Is that right?!

Wrong. It depends on underlying pathology and co-morbities. It can't just be simply put.
