Background: Brain-Lung-Thyroid (BLT) syndrome (OMIM# 610978) is characterized by congenital hypothyroidism (CH), infant respiratory distress syndrome (IRDS), and benign hereditary chorea and is caused by thyroid transcription factor 1 (NKX2-1/TTF1) haploinsufficiency. The phenotype can be partial or complete and there is a large phenotypic variability.Objectives and hypotheses: Identify new genes in a selected group of patients presenting thyroi...
