Abstract

Aims: To evaluate therapy and dose adjustments in patients with congenital hypothyroidism (CH), longitudinally followed up until 16 years old, according to aetiology, Beclard's nuclei presence, and thyroxine (T4) level at diagnosis. Methods:L-T4/kg/day and dose change ratio (CR) were assessed in 74 CH patients. Results: The dose was statistically larger in athyreosis than in dyshormonogenesis (1-10 and beyond 14 years) and in ectopy (2, 15, 16 years). The ectopic children required statistically larger L-T4/kg than the dyshormonogenetic ones (3-7 years). The L-T4/kg/day was increased, not statistically, in patients or with T4
