The aim of this study was to elucidate the role of povidone-iodine (PV-I) on thyroid function of newborns with different birth sizes in a high iodine-intake city. Serial measurements of serum thyroxine (T4) and thyrotropin (TSH) levels were done in 44 newborns locally treated with 10% PV-I for insertion of percutaneous central venous catheters. The results showed that the thyroid function was influenced prominently in very-low-birth weight (VLBW) babies. TSH went significantly higher after application of PV-I for 48 hours in VLBW babies. The smaller the babies were, the lower the T4 at birth and thereafter. In conclusion, PV-I is suggested to be avoided for single application on a wide skin surface in VLBW babies, even in an area with high iodine-intake population.
