View George Rogu M.D. Blind Referral Evaluation 11/8/2005 I have a Blind referral but I would feel more comfortable if a medical professional reviews my child’s data and video while I am traveling overseas.

View George Rogu M.D. Perinatal Encephalopathy Russian Diagnosis, should I worry? 12/14/2005 We were just referred a 7 month old boy that was born at 35-36 weeks. The medical report we received says that the neurologist diagnosed him as having "perinatal lesion of central nervous system." In June and August, the notation "early recovery period" was on the report. In October, the notation was "late recovery period." Is "perinatal lesion of CNS" something that you frequently see? How concerned should we be? Perinatal Encephalopathy - is it something, or is it nothing?

View Alla Gordina, MD, FAAP Availability and Reliability of Records in Russian Orphanages - Part 1 12/15/2005 During the process of adoption from the Former Soviet Unions (FSU), families are forced to ascertain the health and developmental status of their potential child based on medical reports provided by orphanages, evaluation by the in-country medical professionals (when available), and on the family’s personal experience during the visit(s) with the child in the orphanage. Proper use of the documents, typically present in any orphanage file, can make the process of adoption more informed and somewhat less stressful. Besides the medical and educational value of such documents, there is a potential present and future sentimental value of this paperwork to the adoptive family and adopted child.

View George Rogu M.D. Readers question about Rickets in orphan children 12/18/2005 I am considering this sibling group from Russia (Vladimir), two girls 5 and 8 years old. On the medical report of the younger child, it states that she has had Rickets but her health is now good. It does not state what caused rickets. My concern is that she will have future medical problems from this. What do I need to know and what should I expect?
