Samenvatting

We present a case of persistent fetal supraventricular tachycardia where transplacental and direct fetal treatment with amiodarone caused an iatrogenic hypothyroidism. This condition was successfully managed with the intra-amniotic instillation of 250 micrograms of L-thyroxine weekly, for 3 weeks. A male infant was delivered at 32 weeks by Caesarean section. The neonatal electrocardiogram showed Wolf-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome, which was controlled by digoxin alone. Thyroid function normalized quickly and the baby is developing normally.
