Neonatal thyroid dysfunction is quite common in India. The clinical presentation is very subtle and can be captured by neonatal thyroid screening. Neonatal screening paves a better way in detecting and preventing neuro-cognitive insult. In India lack of a national policy, field staff and certified lab; screening programme is not carried out effectively. Managing thyroid disorder in neonates and in children poses unique difficulties. Hypothyroidism can be transient, hence to be reassessed. Neonatal thyrotoxicosis is not commonly seen.
