Abstract

Congenital hypothyroidism is often associated with other congenital anomalies. In some instances it is difficult to differentiate congenital hypothyroidism from Werdnig-Hoffmann's disease. We report a case of congenital hypothyroidism associated with Werdnig Hoffmann's disease that appears to be the first of its kind in the literature.
