If a newborn is diagnosed with X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy what should be done after birth?
No immediate interventions are required if a baby is diagnosed with X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy after birth. Screening of the baby’s hormone levels and monitoring brain MRIs will begin at about 18 months to look for any early signs or symptoms.
