Abstract

In cooperation with newborn screening laboratories and physicians caring for children with phenylketonuria, state health departments should develop a plan to establish or maintain contact with women identified as having elevated blood phenylalanine levels so that these women are kept informed about the implications of their conditions and treatment modalities. Women of low or borderline intelligence, or who have given birth to children with microcephaly and retardation, or who have a family history of phenylketonuria should have a blood screening test for phenylketonuria.
