In this study, our aim was to investigate the frequency of rehospitalization, outcomes and morbidities of the early discharged newborns and to identify the recall rate and if there were any missed cases in hyperphenylalaninemia screening in our unit at which 20 000-25 000 deliveries occur each year.
