Forty-one infants have been referred for thyroid scintigraphy following routine screening for congenital hypothyroidism: 14 (35%) were athyreotic, 19 (45%) had an ectopic thyroid, four (10%) were normal and four (10%) demonstrated other abnormalities. There was a female: male ratio of 4:1. Thyroid scintigraphy is a useful adjunct to biochemical screening.
