The results of medical evaluations of 194 recent indochinese refugees are reported. In addition to confirming findings of other studies of these refugees, we found a significant prevalence of abnormalities, i.e., hematological (37 per cent), dermatological (26 per cent), psychiatric (10 per cent of adults), and thyroid (5 per cent). Guidelines and recommendations of physicians providing medical care for indochinese refugees are presented.
