FLY Chan, KL Ng, TKC Tsui


Abstract

Neonatal Graves' disease is an important but rare neonatal condition. We report two cases of neonatal Graves' disease with drastically different clinical manifestations. These cases highlight the importance of accurate history taking in pregnant patients and demonstrates the clinical utility of thyrotropin-receptor antibody (TRAb) as a predictor of neonatal hyperthyroidism.
