Overview Neonatal hypothyroidism is decreased thyroid hormone production in a newborn. In very rare cases, no thyroid hormone is produced. If the baby was born with the condition, it is called congenital hypothyroidism. If it develops soon after birth, it is referred to as hypothyroidism acquired in the newborn period.

Symptoms *Puffy-appearing face & Dull look *Thick, protruding tongue *Dry, brittle hair & Low hairline *Jaundice & Poor feeding **Choking episodes *Lack of muscle tone (floppy infant) *Constipation & Sleepiness *Sluggishness & Short stature

Prognosis Very early diagnosis generally results in a good outcome. Newborns diagnosed and treated in the first month or so generally develop normal intelligence. Untreated, mild hypothyroidism can lead to severe mental retardation and growth retardation. Critical development of the nervous system takes place in the first few months after birth. Thyroid hormone deficiency may cause irreversible damage.
Slide 8 :
Prevention If a pregnant women takes radioactive iodine for thyroid cancer, the thyroid gland may be destroyed in the developing fetus. Infants whose mothers have taken such medicines should be observed carefully after birth for signs of hypothyroidism. Most states require a routine screening test to check all newborns for hypothyroidism. See also: Newborn screening tests
