Early diagnosis and treatment are crucial, as delays in care for certain diagnoses can cause permanent scarring alopecia. The evaluation of hair loss includes a thorough history, physical examination, and other potential tests. The causes of hair loss can be classified as either acquired versus congenital. Acquired causes of hair loss can be subdivided into scarring and nonscarring; however, some conditions may present as nonscarring and progress to scarring alopecia. Recommendations for the evaluation and treatment of pediatric hair loss for the primary care practitioner will be summarized. J Pediatr Health Care. (2021) 35, 651−661

Urine drug screening (UDS) is a laboratory test frequently used to screen for drugs of abuse, monitor for medication compliance, evaluate for suspected drug intoxication or overdose, and in office-based pain contracts (Kale, 2019; Standridge, Adams, & Zotos, 2010). In children and adolescents, UDS may be used to prevent substance use, evaluate for suspected drug use or intoxication, or as part of substance abuse treatment (Levy & Siqueira, 2014). When using UDS as a tool to make clinical decisions about high-risk medications, it is important to understand the differences between UDS testing modalities, common causes of falsepositive or false-negative results, and the detection window of specific medications. There are two commonly used types of UDS available: immunoassay and gas chromatography/ mass spectrometry (GC-MS; Kale, 2019).
