What examination would be appropriate for the local doctor to perform?

Musculoskeletal examination such as pGALS and systemic examination (looking for pallor, lymphadenopathy and abdominal organomegaly) should be performed. Blood tests are not always necessary, and if there is concern about the diagnosis (or the child is young and there are concerns about taking blood tests) then referral is strongly recommended as soon as possible.
