"Don’t touch me! I don’t want anything! Go away!", that’s not good first meeting. Thirteen-year-old Irynka sits like a hedgehog on the hospital bed of the Institute of Neurosurgery. She is aggressive and anxious. However, after a few minutes of conversation, Ira cried out in my arms and quietly said: "I’m just so scared...". The girls will have a surgery to remove a tumor.

After the baby is born into the world, his body adapts to completely different environmental conditions and undergoes many changes. One of the adaptation mechanisms is jaundice of newborns. During the fetal life of a child, its blood contains much more erythrocytes than an adult's.
