Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Hypertension has only recently been reported in neonatal hyperthyroidism. We describe three children with hypertension as a prominent part of the syndrome. Antihypertensive therapy alone was ineffective in controlling elevated BP. All patients showed gradual resolution of hypertension once a euthyroid state was achieved.
