Disorder-Specific Information


Minnesota's Newborn Screening Panel

The newborn screening panel refers to the list of disorders that newborns are screened for shortly after birth. In Minnesota, disorders are added to this panel by the Commissioner of Health with advice and recommendations from Minnesota's Advisory Committee on Heritable and Congenital Disorders.

Screening panels may vary from state to state. The Advisory Committee on Heritable Disorders in Newborns and Children (ACHDNC) provides national recommendations on what disorders should be screened for in all states to the Secretary of Health and Human Services. However, each state ultimately determines which disorders to include in its panel.

Disorder-Specific Information

The following fact sheets are designed to provide additional disorder-specific information to both families and providers following an abnormal newborn screening result. It is important to keep in mind that an abnormal result means more testing is needed to know for sure whether the baby is affected by a disorder.

Medical fact sheets offer health care providers recommended short-term actions following an abnormal result, as well as some basic information about the disorder.
