Neonatal Screening for G6PD, 17-OHP and TSH Levels
International Journal of Science and Research (IJSR)
The basic screening of newborn babies for detecting pathologies like G6PD deficiency leading to hyperbilirubinemia, congenital adrenal hyperplasia and congenital hypothyroidism. Neonatal screening is very important in reducing neonatal mortality and morbidity. Screening programs help us to identify those cases that cannot be identified by routine observation and physical examination. A cost effective nation wide screening program is highly recommended for detection of cases as early as possible.
