    Notes: Abstract The present situation of neonatal mass screening for metabolic disorders in eleven European countries is presented. The only disease screened for on a population wide basis in almost all countries is phenylketonuria. Screening for congenital hypothyroidism has been started in most countries or is under active consideration. A priority list of disorders that should be screened for routinely in all newborns comprises congenital hypothyroidism, hyperphenylalaninaemia, galactosaemia and maple syrup urine disease. Other disorders, like adrenogenital syndrome, cystic fibrosis. Duchenne's muscular dystrophy, histidinaemia, or tyrosinaemia cannot be recommended for mass screening at present because of an unsatisfactory test procedure or lack of effective treatment.
