Background: In recent years, increasing cases of congenital hypothyroidism (CH) with in situ thyroid gland are identified. Outcome of children affected from CH with normally sited thyroid of normal size is still unknown. The objective of our study is to describe the natural history of this specific form of CH. Patients and methods: We retrospectively evaluated clinical, biochemical and instrumental data of 74 patients with diagnosis of CH with in situ thyroid...

Introduction: Congenital hypothyroidism (CH) with in situ thyroid gland (GIS) and non-autoimmune subclinical hypothyroidism (NASI) are functional defects of thyroid gland occurring at birth and after birth, respectively. In recent years, a higher incidence of these disorders has been documented. The etiology remains unclear, with only an almost 50% of cases attributable to mutations in known dyshormonogenesis-associated or TSH-receptor genes. Although replacement ther...
