Resumen

El Hipotiroidismo Subclínico (HSC) es una afección frecuente en edades pediátricas. El objetivo de este trabajo es presentar una revisión de los estudios realizados en los últimos años. Se destaca que el HSC es una entidad benigna, que frecuentemente remite y que habitualmente no necesita el tratamiento con Levotiroxina sódica (LT4). Finalmente, se señalan las posibles indicaciones de tratamiento con LT4.
