Abstract

Background: Linear growth and final height are reported as normal in congenital hypothyroid patients in the neonatal screening era. Methods: We evaluated the final height in 215 patients with congenital hypothyroidism to assess if it improved over the last 2 decades. Results: Final height (-0.1∈±∈1.0 SDS) was higher than target height (-0.8∈±∈1.0 SDS, p∈2∈=∈0.564, p∈2∈=∈0.685, p∈
