    Early diagnosis its relation to mental prognosis

    Abstract

    A total of 141 cases of hypothyroidism diagnosed within the first two years has been reviewed. The best mental development was achieved when treatment was begun within the first three months of life. At this time hypothyroidism presents mainly with symptoms—usually feeding difficulty, constipation, and lethargy, while the classical physical signs are less obvious than later.
