Congenital hypothyroidism (CH) may be of thyroidal (CHT) or central origin (CHC). Worldwide, most neonatal screening programs are TSH based and effectively detect CHT. Only a few screening programs measure total or free T4 and TSH simultaneously or stepwise, enabling detection of CHT as well as CHC. A frequently used argument against screening...
