    Abstract

    The biochemical state and treatment of 73 children and 44 adults up to the age of 40 with proved congenital hypothyroidism were assessed in a regional study in the north of England. The findings showed that a substantial proportion of the patients were having inappropriate treatment or were not taking their treatment regularly and that in some of these there were clinical effects.
