Suppression of the fetal pituitary-thyroid axis may be due to placental transfer of thyroxine from the hyperthyroid mother. This may persist for months postnatally, necessitating treatment to optimise neurodevelopmental outcome.||Source Title:||Journal of Paediatrics and Child Health||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/131341||ISSN:||10344810||DOI:||10.1046/j.1440-1754.2002.00741.x|
