The Natural History of Delayed TSH Elevation in Neonatal Intensive Care (NICU) Newborns

Zung Amnon , Radi Alin , Almashanu Shlomo

Context: Delayed TSH elevation (dTSH) is defined as elevated TSH in the second neonatal screen following normal TSH in the initial screen. The clinical outcome of newborns with dTSH is not entirely elucidated, although several studies have suggested a full recovery in most cases.Objective: We aim to elucidate the natural history of dTSH in a group of neonatal intensive care newborns. In addition, we aim to define clinica...

Characteristics of Delayed TSH Elevation in Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Newborns

Zung Amnon , Yehieli Arie , Almashanu Shlomo

Background: Delayed TSH elevation (dTSH) is defined by normal TSH on the initial neonatal screening followed by elevated TSH on the second screen. Several studies concluded that dTSH is associated with low birth weight (BW) and is mostly transient.Objective and hypotheses: To elucidate clinical characteristics of dTSH in a large cohort of neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) newborns.Method: Clinical data were gathered from a cohort...

Backround: Hereditary inborn errors of thyroid hormone synthesis account for 10-15% of congenital hypothyroidism (CH). Thyroid peroxidase (TPO) deficiency is the most common enzymatic defect with a frequency of 50-90%.Aim: In the present study our objective was to characterize the long-term clinical outcome in patients with TPO deficiency and to assess the association between development of multinodular goiter (M...

Introduction: Maternal thyroid disease is considered as a risk factor for abnormal thyroid function at birth as well as for long-term morbidity in offspring. The potential harmful effects on the neonate had led to the clinical practice of thyroid function assessment in infants born to mothers with thyroid disease during pregnancy, despite well-established newborn screening programs with include congenital hypothyroidism screening. We evaluated the usefulness o...
