      Abstract :

      The function of G6PD is keeping stability and integrity of erythrocyte wall. “Formazen Ring” is a simple method for screening G6PD deficiency. This method was introduced by Nishiyama et al from International Centre for Medical Research (ICMR) Kobe University – Japan. The purpose of this study is wanting to know the prevalence rate of G6PD deficiency in fullterm neonate who born spontaneously at neonatal ward-Departement of Child Health dr. Soetomo Hospital – Surabaya. Four hundred and eighty two babies enrolled in this study. Blood sample from babies hand was dropped to filter paper (one drop) for one filter paper. Then, diametre of formation on agar media was measured by formazan ring (this media was incubated for 4 hours in 370C). G6PD deficiency (< 6 cm) was found in eight babies (1.7%). Because of the incidence of G6PD deficiency is very high, it is important to measure enzyme activity and biomoluculer examination to identify the variants.
