The purposes of determining the incidence of reentry for phototherapy newly equal to or greater than 35 weeks gestational age apparently healthy infants without hemolysis in Florida Department of, analyze what factors associated with the need for phototherapy and describe treatment performed in the internment was a descriptive and analytical study of retrospective character. The study period was two years from January 1, 2008 to December 31, 2009. Results: we included 18 newborns in the study period which represents 16.2 per thousand of readmissions. Thirteen were male (72.2%) and female (27.8%) 5. Primigravid corresponded to 83.3% and were product of second gestation or more 16.7%. Birth canal was in a vaginal delivery 77.7% and 22.3% by caesarean section. They had 37 weeks gestational age or shorter gestation 9 (50%). The percentage of loss of weight at the time of re-entry varied between 10% and 14.8% of the weight at birth.
