Diseases and Conditions Identified in Children

Most of the health conditions included on this page are either identified birth defects tracked by Children and Youth with Special Health Needs (CYSHN) activities or are conditions that may be included in Newborn and Child Follow-up Unit activities. You will find basic information about many of these health conditions, including a general description and how to find more information and resources. If the health condition you are looking for is not included here, it may be found on the A-Z Listing of Diseases & Conditions. For more information about prevalence of birth defects in Minnesota, visit the Minnesota Public Health Data Access Website. For information about newborn screening, visit the Minnesota Department of Health's Newborn Screening Program website.
