Abstract

Amiodarone is an iodine-rich medication used to treat maternal and fetal arrhythmias, with known effects on thyroid hormone homeostasis. We describe a case of transient neonatal hypothyroidism following a short prenatal course of maternal amiodarone therapy resulting in neonatal TSH elevations exceeding those reported in the available literature.
