Dr. R. B. Grashia Packia Stary [3] | Dr. E. Nithin Siromony [3]

Abstract: Congenital hypothyroidism is one among the preventable causes of mental retardation. Indian Academy of Paediatrics recommends the use of cord blood samples for screening congenital hypothyroidism. In most cases, the disorder is permanent and results from dysgenesis or agenesis of thyroid gland or a defect in hormonogenesis. A hospital based prospective cohort study was done to study the reliability of cord blood TSH in the diagnosis of congenital hypothyroidism. A cross-sectional study was conducted on 1387 new born babies born in southern railway headquarters hospital between November 2015 to November 2016 to study relationship between maternal thyroid status and cord blood TSH levels.
