Deladoëy J and Van Vliet G. Treating Congenital Hypothyroidism: which levothyroxine? Nat Rev Endocrinol 2013 (Epub 5 March 2013) Importantly, parents of infants with congenital hypothyroidism must be reassured that, provided that their infant’s serum TSH concentration is not markedly raised after the first 2 weeks of treatment and that monitoring at regular intervals occurs, … Continue reading »

Stoppa-Vaucher S, Van Vliet G, Deladoëy J. Variation by Ethnicity in the Prevalence of Congenital Hypothyroidism due to Thyroid Dysgenesis. Thyroid 2011; 21(1):13-8. Thyroid dysgenesis is less prevalent in Blacks and more prevalent in Caucasians. Blacks being more genetically diverse, this suggests oligogenic mechanisms accounting for thyroid dysgenesis.
