This study was aimed to screen the patients for phenylketonuria among chronic psychiatric inpatients. A total of 577 cases were studied which included mentally retarded patients, schizophrenics and those suffering from depressive disorders. During the extensive screening not a single positive case could be identified. The findings of this screening support the previous studies. Looking at low incidence of PKU we do not recommend extensive screening for PKU.
