Approach Considerations

No laboratory studies yield results that are directly relevant to attachment disorders. Studies related to neglect and nutritional deprivation (eg, anemia caused by iron deficiency or a high level of lead caused by pica) exist. No imaging studies are used to diagnose attachment disorders. No specific histologic findings are related to attachment disorders.
