BACKGROUND The relationship of thyroxine supplementation for transient hypothyroxinemia of prematurity to the incidence of cerebral palsy (CP) in infants <28 weeks of gestation is unclear. METHODS The incidence of CP at a corrected age of 18 months was compared between infants born in a 3-year period in which routine measurement of free T4 (FT4) in the blood was not performed (first period, n= 54), and those born in a later 3-year period in which FT4 was measured (second period, n= 60; mainly… CONTINUE READING
