Abstract

Evaluation of TSH concentration and congenital hypothyroidism in infants of Pakistan

Muhammad Ameen

Sub- clinical hypothyroidism (SCH) is the condition when the serum thyrotropin (TSH) level and normal serum thyroxine (T4) level has elevated. The most common congenital endocrine disorder is the congenital hypothyroidism (CH) which is considered major cause of mental retardation and body growth disorder. This retrospective study was performed on all 18 neonates, who were born during years 2014 and 2015. The infants with congenital hypothyroidism (CH) can be accurately diagnosed with laboratory tests performed at Nuclear Medicine, Oncology and Radiotherapy Institute (NORI) during the last five years.
