GALACTOSEMIA, NEWBORN SCREEN

Galactosemia usually is asymptomatic at birth, but affected infants develop jaundica, diarrhoea, vomiting & failure to gain weight. If the disease remains undetected, it leads to liver disease, cataract, mental retardation and even death. Bacterial infections are common & can lead to sepsis with ingestion of milk in the affected child.
