  • Cretinism in iodine-deficiency areas is weil known, yet the milder forms of somatic and psychomotor maldevelopment and thyroid dysfunction caused by iodine deficiency may be more difficult ta detect. DeQuervain, in 1936, called this milder form "semi-cretinism," while in 1980 Laggasse used the term "cretinoidism." It was formally named "subclinical endemic cretinism" at a symposium on subclinical cretinism held in Xinzhou, Shanxi province in 1985. Currently, attention is being focused on these… CONTINUE READING
