On Wednesday May 12th at 14:00 – 15:00 CET an Endo-ERN webinar about “Central congenital hypothyroidism; clinical characteristics and cognitive outcome in early detected patients” will be given by Nitash Zwaveling-Soonawala, Paul van Trotsenburg and Jolanda Naafs from Amsterdam-UMC, the Netherlands.
Central congenital hypothyroidism (CH) may occur in isolation, but in the majority of cases it is part of combined pituitary hormone deficiencies. The Netherlands has a longstanding neonatal screening program for central CH. Recently we studied the yield of 20 years of screening for central CH. In this webinar we will discuss the clinical and genetic characteristics of this large cohort of early detected central CH patients. In addition we will present the results of cognitive testing and health-related quality of life of these patients compared with healthy siblings.
