Newborn Screening False Positive — The Bump

Newborn Screening False Positive

Has anyone ever gotten a false positive on their newborn screening? I have a 34 weeker in NICU who had his test come back abnormal. They told me it's common to get false positives on preemies, but I am freaking out. Thanks 

Re: Newborn Screening False Positive

  • I got a false positive (twice) with my 25 weeker. She was completely fine!
  • Yes, I also had a false positive twice with my 27 weeker. It is common with preemies, nothing to worry about. They'll retest in a few weeks and maybe again in a few weeks after that.
