Case to be discussed:
 
The parents of a 6-year old boy with learning and motor delays present to the child’s primary care provider. There have been no recent changes, and vital signs are normal. A developmentally delayed cousin was recently “tested for heavy metals”, so the parents request that these labs be checked for their child as well. In addition to basic labs, heavy metal blood and urine tests are ordered. All results are WNL, except for a random urine arsenic of 93 mcg/gm Cr.
