Neonatal Thyrotoxicosis in Scotland Summary

Project Description and Aims

Neonatal thyrotoxicosis is a rare condition affecting infants born of mothers with Graves' disease. Its presentation is varied and can be associated with significant morbidity. We would like to determine the incidence of neonatal thyrotoxicosis in Scotland, the method of presentation and features of the condition, as well as review the treatment models used for the condition. We would like to ascertain any co-morbidities associated with the condition, and whether there are any long term (1 year and 4 year) sequelae of the condition.
