Norfolk Suffolk Cambridge Cystic Fibrosis Nerwork guideline.
Neonatal screening for cystic fibrosis CF has been on going for over three decades in East Anglia. With approximately 28 000 live births per annum it is expected that around 11 new cases of CF will be detected within the region each year. However paediatricians must remain vigilant as the screening process may miss a very small number of CF patients. It must be remembered some counties that border the region have introduced neonatal screening for CF only recently and paediatricians must continue to consider CF as a possible diagnosis in symptomatic children.
