We present a structured summary of the document ?Consensus on international adoption.
Guidelines for paediatricians and other health professionals? published on November
2005. The summary presented tries to be a representative sample of the whole original document
and to reflect its contents and proposals with fidelity. International adoption has
increased in an extraordinary way in our country. Between 1997 and 2004, 24042 children
from 49 countries have arrived. Children adopted abroad have an increased risk of presenting
with health problems. The journey and stay abroad implies additional risks. We describe
the contents of the preadoptive medical visit and recommendations for making a
complete evaluation after the arrival of the child from his/her country of origin to the new
family. We also stress the need of undertaking a long follow up.
Keywords: Paediatrics. Primary Care. Adoption. International adoption.
