Congenital hypothyroidism due to a variety of defects in the biosynthesis of thyroid hormone is detected in 1/30,000-50,000 live births. In the iodide organification defect which is one of defect in the biosynthesis of thyroid hormone, iodide is not organified and may be rapidly discharged from the thyroid by administration of perchlorate. We experienced two siblings who had short stature, goiter, mental retardation, constipation and other manifestation of hypothyroidism. Diagnosis was made by goiter, typical clinical manifestation and thyriod function test and positive response to perchlorate discharge test. The review of Iiteratures was made briefly.
Key Words: Congenital hypothyroidism, Organification defect, Perchlorate discharge test
