Abstract

Objectives: To determine the type and frequency of thyroid disorders detected in infants with low thyroxine (T4) and nonelevated thyroid- stimulating hormone (TSH) screening test results in the Northwest Regional Newborn Screening Program (NWRNSP) over the 20-year period from May 1975 to May 1995 and to determine the effect of follow-up of these infants on the overall recall rate. Study design: The NWRNSP requests a serum specimen in infants with an absolute T4 level <38.6 nmol/L (
