The report presents a case of a full-term male infant born with an enlarged anterior neck mass, of a healthy woman with normal thyroid function and negative thyroid antibodies. After treatment, his free thyroxine and total triiodothyronine levels normalized. A defect in thyroid hormone synthesis was considered the cause of the hypothyroidism.
