Expert Answer:

In jaundice, the yellow discoloration of the skin and whites of the eyes is due to an abnormally high level of bilirubin (bile pigment) in the blood. Bilirubin is a compound produced when hemoglobin is broken down in the blood. The excess bilirubin causes the skin, eyes and mucus membranes in the mouth to appear yellowish in color.
