Yellow eyes can have various causes, ranging in severity from 'troubling' to 'generally fatal'. Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.
Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms. In order to diagnose yellow eyes, we could:
|Cirrhosis Of The Liver||17%||Unlikely|
|Gallbladder Disease||2%||Ruled out|
|Infectious Mononucleosis||0%||Ruled out|
|Pancreatic Cancer||0%||Ruled out|

Jaundice is a yellowing of the skin and eyes that occurs when the diseased liver does not process enough bilirubin.
Malaria can cause jaundice through the loss of red blood cells.
