Clinical Evaluation with Self-sequential Longitudinal Reference Intervals: Pregnancy Outcome and Neonatal Thyroid Stimulating Hormone Level Associated with Maternal Thyroid Diseases

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.143
Pages: 
28–34
Synopsis: 
The thyroid function of 1744 pregnant women was clinically evaluated with a new self-sequential longitudinal reference interval (SLRI) which we established. Thyroid disorders were common in pregnant women and the disorders were associated with pregnancy and fetal outcome. Routine maternal thyroid function screening is important and should be recommended.

ABSTRACT

Objective: We attempted to evaluate maternal thyroid function in a new self-sequential longitudinal reference interval (SLRI) which we established recently. By this method, we analysed the correlation between pregnancy outcome, neonatal thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) level and maternal thyroid diseases.

Transverse myelitis is a very rare neurological condition associated with immunologic and infectious
conditions causing interruption of the neuroanatomical pathways in a transverse plane in the spinal
cord. Herein is described the fatal case of a patient that developed transverse myelitis after a
Caesarean delivery, probably related to the epidural analgesia.
