Small Thyroid Volume on Ultrasound in Infants with Transient TSH Elevation Following Referral by Newborn Screening

Mansour Chourouk , Jones Jeremy , Green Morag , Stenhouse Emily , Irwin Greg , Donaldson Malcolm

Background: Infants referred with elevation of capillary TSH on newborn screening are classified as having transient TSH elevation when subsequently found to have normal venous thyroid function tests off treatment with thyroxine. Causes of transient TSH elevation include neonatal sickness, prematurity and maternal thyroid antibodies. There is little information on thyroid size in such infants.Objective: To determine thyroid volume by ultrasound in infant...

Background: Establishing thyroid size as large, normal or small in newborn infants with TSH elevation and in situ thyroid is important for diagnosis and informing molecular genetic studies.Objective and hypotheses: To compare intra-observer variation in the objective (Ox) measurement of thyroid volume (vol) by ultrasound (US); and the correlation between subjective (Sx) and Ox assessment.Method: Joint blinded retrospective...
