Congenital hypothyroidism is one of the most frequent endocrinological disease in pediatrics and the most common cause of mental retardation. It is important the diagnosis thru the routine screening of neonatal TSH, because most of the newborn are asymptomatic. We describe an 11 day-old infant seen at the Hospital del Niño "Dr. Ovidio Aliaga Uría", the follow up for 5 months shows a good response to treatment. We emphasize the importance of the routine screening for the disease and the importance of the early treatment.
