Varying signs: PKU detection test is mandatory newborn screening in the developed world, including all 50 states in the US. The early s/s of PKU include seizures, microcephaly ( small head) other developmental delays, eczema etc. tests should always be repeated within 2 wks to confirm diagnosis. Earlier intervention by phenyl alanine free diet can reverse most signs.
