Hypoechoic thyroid nodules on ultrasound 4 years after prenatal exposure to radioiodine: resolution with thyroxine therapy.

Abstract

UNLABELLED We describe an infant inadvertently exposed to radioiodine at 17 weeks gestation. His mother had received 400 MBq of (131)I for hyperthyroidism (total T4 178 nmol/L, thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) <0.1 mU/L, 4-h (131)I uptake 16%). Following cordocentesis at 27 weeks (free T4 12.7 pmol/L, TSH 35.4 mU/L) intra-amniotic thyroxine was withheld… (More)
