Abstract

Because of the number of internationally adopted children with undiagnosed disease, a defined set of screening tests for medical evaluation is now recommended. By and large, these tests are directed toward infectious diseases that are more common abroad than in the United States. In this article, the authors examine various aspects of screening and highlight tests that are useful in children from specified areas. They also review developmental issues that are of prime importance to these children and their new families.
