    Objectives.

    There is little agreement as to the optimal cutoff point for thyrotropin testing in primary thyroxine screening programs for congenital hypothyroidism.

    Most programs in the United States use a cutoff point of 10% of the lowest thyroxine values, whereas in the Netherlands a cutoff point of 20% is used.

    Therefore, the results of the Dutch program may provide valuable information about the optimal cutoff point.
