Neonatal screening tests are used for the screening of genetic, endocrine and metabolic diseases. Preterm newborns have a higher false-positive and false-negative results in neonatal screening. The objective of this study was to estimate the prevalence of false-positive and false-negative results in the neonatal screening tests for phenylketonuria, congenital hypothyroidism, biotinidase deficiency and congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) in preterm newborns in Curitiba, to ana...
