Abstract The objective of the present work was to improve the effectiveness of early diagnostics, prophylaxis, and correction of hearing impairment in the patients presenting with congenital primary hypothyroidism (CPH). The results of observation of 73 cases indicate that the late onset of substitution therapy of CPH with levothyroxine has no negative effect on the hearing function. The prevalence of hearing impairment was shown to depend on the etiological variant of CPH.
