Background: There are a lot of reasons for missing the diagnosis in neonatal screening for congenital hypothyroidism (CH), but errors in processing samples and reporting results are the most frequent! In Central Serbia screening for CH was instituted in 1983 by determination of the TSH level in dried filter-paper blood spots. All samples are analyzed at one central laboratory. The average number of specimens that are annually screened is 50 000. The screening process was divid...
