A four day old boy is brought to the clinic by his mother for yellow coloration of his skin and eyes. On examination, the boy is normally developed and his sclera is icteric. Blood test indicates high serum unconjugated bilirubin. What is the main reason of jaundice in this boy?
A- Hemolysis of red blood cells
B- Decreased excretion of bilirubin
C- Abnormal dilation of common bile duct
D- Low levels of glucuronyl transferase
