Title: Phenylketonuria in Chinese in Singapore

Abstract: The first 2 cases of phenylketonuria seen in Chinese in Singapore are reported. This refutes the usually accepted view that PKU is nonexistent in Singapore. Both cases were encountered within a period of 1 yr. The pathogenesis of PKU and its variants is briefly described. The point is made that it is worthwhile screening for PKU by examining the urine at 2-4 wk of life with ferric chloride. However, those carrying out the test should have good experience and knowledge of all possible reactions with ferric chloride.
