For instance neonatal screening for phenylketonuria and hypothyroidism are current practice in several countries of North America, Europe, in Japan New Zeland, Australia, Israel and more recently in China and South America (WB Hanley, personal communication).

    However, most developing countries do not have neonatal thyroid screening programs. Using India as an example, we review the case for newborn screening in the developing world. Methods: A literature review on infantile hypothyroidism in India was conducted and three Indian thyroid experts were queried about their views on neonatal screening in Cited by: Biochemical screening for the development of MEN1 tumors in asymptomatic members (see Figure ) of families with MEN1 is of great importance in as much as earlier diagnosis and treatment of these tumors may help reduce morbidity and mortality. 5 The age-related penetrance (i.e. the proportion of gene carriers manifesting symptoms or signs of the disease by a given age) has been ascertained.
